A patriotic song “Maa tujhe salaam” from the 1997 album “Vande Mataram” holds the most special place in AR Rahman’s life.
“I had this in my mind on how to crack it because I was very objective about it, thinking whether patriotism will work or not. So, I was like, forget about the country, let”s do it as a personal song — like singing a song for one”s mother. That”s how it was created,” Rahman said while speaking to one of the media.
The track holds two Guinness World Records for being the song performed in the most number of languages.
