RahmanVishal-Shekhar has replaced A R Rahman for Farah Khan’s forthcoming Om Shanti Om, which is will be produced under Shah Rukh Khan’s banner, Red Chillies Entertainment. Some are saying that Shah Rukh is not happy with the tunes composed by Rahman. Additionally the rumour had it that Rahman demanded a huge fee, refused by director Farah Khan. According to the source himself, Rahman, the story is a different one. He says Shah Rukh and he never had problems regarding his compositions. Going on to say the reason he opted out of the film was that he wanted the music rights to stay with the Composer and the Lyricist along with the producer, however, that was something which Farah and Shah Rukh Khan didn’t agree with. Rahman did succeeded in getting a share of the publishing rights for Aamir Khan’s next film, directed by Abbas Tyrewalla. Speaking about the Om Shanti Om music, director Vishal Dadlani said, “Farah has approved five tunes for Om Shanti Om. We have worked with her on Jingles for the past two years so we share a great comfort level working with her. Hence, when she asked us if we would like to do the music of her next film, we agreed instantly. We are putting in our full energy in this film. We are going to create some awesome tracks, which have never been heard before.” When asked about replacing A. R Rahman, Vishal said “Yes, we knew that Rahman was initially going to do the music but due to some reason the deal didn’t work out. But, as you know, both I and Shekhar are big fans of Rahman ourselves and have no connection with this episode.”
