once said to me that making a movie is like how you make a song. You’ve the introduction, the theme of the song, the tune and then you do the BGM. Then comes the ‘antara’ and you’ve a journey that eventually comes to an end beautifully,” shared Rahman, who has also dedicated the film to Mani Ratnam and legendary yesteryear Tamil director K Balachander.

Rahman went on to say that his love for stories also pushed him to turn writer and filmmaker. “love stories, I love to study people and their lives; not just people from our Indian culture but from many other cultures as well,” said the genius composer. 99 Songs is having a simultaneous release in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu.
