Pankit Thakker Disappointed with AR Rahman’s Boastful Tale About Michael Jackson

As
an
actor
and
a
huge
fan
of
the
late
Michael
Jackson,
I
was
disheartened
to
read
an
article
featuring
AR
Rahman’s
encounter
with
the
King
of
Pop.
While
I
have
immense
respect
for
Rahman’s
talent,
I
couldn’t
help
but
feel
that
the
article
was
a
self-serving
piece
aimed
at
boosting
his
own
image.

As
someone
who
has
grown
up
idolizing
Michael
Jackson,
I
felt
that
the
article
diminished
his
importance
and
reduced
their
meeting
to
a
mere
footnote
in
Rahman’s
illustrious
career.
It
seemed
like
a
convenient
timing,
with
Rahman’s
documentary
premiering
at
the
Indian
Film
Festival
of
Melbourne,
to
plant
a
story
that
puts
him
in
a
favorable
light.

I
couldn’t
help
but
wonder
if
this
was
a
genuine
recollection
or
a
clever
marketing
ploy
to
generate
buzz
around
his
documentary.
As
a
fan,
I
felt
that
Michael
Jackson
deserved
better
than
to
have
his
legacy
used
as
a
prop
in
someone
else’s
story.

I
wish
AR
Rahman
had
chosen
to
share
his
encounter
with
Michael
Jackson
in
a
more
sincere
and
heartfelt
manner,
rather
than
using
it
as
a
means
to
boost
his
own
reputation.
Michael
Jackson’s
legacy
deserves
to
be
celebrated
with
respect
and
reverence,
not
used
as
a
tool
for
self-promotion.
