Ever since Oscar-winning composer AR Rahman visited Pune, he has been constantly making headlines. For the uninitiated, Rahman was in town for a concert along with 19-year-old Tazakistani singer Abdu Rozik. However, there was a bit of controversy. During the concert in Pune on April 30, the police arrived at the venue and ordered the artists to stop the show, citing that the concert had exceeded the allowed time limit of 10 pm due to noise pollution.
This is the Pune policeman who stopped the AR Rahman concert; gives a detailed account of the incident
Although AR Rahman and the police department have already clarified the matter, the inspector, who stopped the program, spoke about it in detail. In an interview with Pune Mirror, the policeman said: “I don’t want to give any further comment. Anyway, as a police officer, I’m not supposed to give interviews to the media. The Supreme Court has set a deadline of 10:00 p.m. after which loud music is not allowed to be played.”
Speaking further, he also clarified that he had tried to approach the organizers first, and that he went on stage only after they did not respond. He stated: “I tried to contact the organizers but they didn’t respond. Therefore, I had to go on stage and ask Rahman and other artists to stop the music. I had no choice as the allotted time had passed.”
As mentioned above, AR Rahman reacted to the incident with a post on his social media account. He had written: “Did we all have the ‘Rockstar’ moment on stage yesterday? I think we did it! We were overwhelmed by the love from the audience and wanted to give more… Pune, thank you once again for such a memorable evening. Here is a small snippet of our roller coaster ride ;).”
