The enthusiasm that Mr. Ghai had while making Taal was infectious. It was tough love, we had our set of arguments, our share of fun but ultimately a beautiful soundtrack came into being. He made me learn a bit of Hindi, and I went on to learn Urdu from there ahead. I want to wish Mr. Ghai a very happy birthday, God bless you!”

An emotional Subhash Ghai replied back saying, “Getting a birthday wish from A R Rahman in itself is such a wonderful moment. It has always been fun working with him, there is no need for me to elaborate more on it. I thank everyone for their lovely wishes.”
