Oscar-winning Indian music legend AR Rahman has made a huge statement in support of Will Smith saying that he was a ‘sweetheart.’ The celebrated music composer made the statement on The Kapil Sharma Show.
Rahman said, “Actually, he’s a sweetheart. He’s really a nice person. Actually. He’s had an extraordinary day that day.”
Rahman said, “Someday, it just happens.”
Rahman was referring to the infamous slap-gate controversy at this year’s Oscars when Will Smith was seen punching the face of comic and host, Chris Rock. The comic had cracked a joke at the hair loss disease of Will Smith’s wife, Jada Pink Smith.
Kapil Sharma decided to dig out an old photo of AR Rahman with Will Smith to read some of the quirkiest comments posted by the music composer’s fans. No sooner did Rahman see the photo of himself with Will Smith, he said, “This is the old one.”
Reacting to Rahman’s photo with Will Smith, one fan had written, “Rahman sir, please stay away from him. His hands move a lot.” Another had commented, “Rahman sir doesn’t need take the tension. He doesn’t speak much anyway.”
