When A R Rahman Had To Google Who Pelé Was! Totally a Sharapova Moment.
Remember when, Russian tennis “star” Maria Sharapova didn’t know who Sachin Tendulkar was? Of course you remember.
She apparently managed to piss off the majority of the Indian cricket community.
‘How could she!? was how Tendulkar’s fans had reacted then.
And now, it seems A R Rahman on the same footsteps of Sharapova. The Oscar-winning composer might know everything about music, but when he was approached to score for a biopic on Pelé, he had to Google to find out about the legendary footballer.
Rahman has scored music for “Pelé : Birth of a Legend”, based on the life of the iconic Brazilian soccer player.
“When I was approached for the project, I first Googled who Pelé was, because my life is all music. I saw amazing things about him and who he was.”
“After that I read the script. I had tremendous respect for the project.”
Rahman told PTI.
Here’s What the Project was all about.
We hope by braziallian fans are not much upset about the same. 😛
