AR Rahman's concert on Sunday in Chennai has become a huge talking point. The concert was a mega flop in terms of crowd control and security of women. It has been alleged that Rahman has been indifferent to the plight of his fans who experienced major inconvenience due to the alleged greed of the organizers.
Rahman, who must have become richer by a few crores because of the concert, has been receiving negative press. The perception is that Rahman is not interested in forcing the organizers to compensate those who booked tickets but couldn't even enter the venue.
Since Rahman commands a lot of goodwill in the film industry, his team is getting some notable names tweet in his support. Even a star hero like Karthi has come out in support of Rahman. "We have known and loved Rahman sir for more than 3 decades now... What happened during the concert was unfortunate. However, knowing sir he would be immensely affected by it. My family too was at the concert amid the chaos but I stay with Rahman sir and I hope the event organizers take responsibility. I request all the fans to choose love over hate as Rahman sir always gave his love to all," the 'Sardar' and 'Japan' actor wrote.
Yuvan Shankar Raja and several others have also supported Rahman in the wake of the controversy.
