Mumbai | A R Rahman may have been working with filmmaker Ashutosh Gowariker since Lagaan, but the ace music composer initially felt that the director’s upcoming venture Mohenjo Daro was like a documentary and will be boring. Initially when you (Ashutosh) said ‘Mohenjo Daro’ I thought it is going to be like a historic documentary.

It’s going to be boring, Rahman said at a promotional event of Mohenjo Daro here last evening. It was after Gowariker showed some pictures of his world of Mohenjo Daro that Rahman got the idea of the film and was equally amazed. I tried to go to that zone (for the film) and used my imagination (to create music), he added.

Gowariker on the occasion was curious to know how Rahman manages to keep different cultures in mind while scoring music for Hindi films, down South, and even for films in West. To which the Oscar winner artist said, We all have the same emotions, love, sadness, anger, romance and dreams, so I tap on to that universal factor of emotion. I used to do it better before..I can’t do it anymore. I am getting older. The 49-year-old Tamasha composer also sang a few lines of Tu Hai from the film at the event.
