Sona Mohapatra reveals ‘illiterate self-important gang’, made composer Ram Sampath go through hell

Sona Mohapatra claims that her husband, music composer Ram Sampath had to go through hell due to some illiterate self-important gang, who worked against him in the Bollywood industry.

The music maestro AR Rahman on an interview with Radio Mirchi revealed that a gang in Bollywood is working against him by spreading false news about the composer. This is the reason why the maestro is seen working more on South Indian film projects than Bollywood projects. Later, the BJP leader Dr. Subramanian Swamy shared this news on his Twitter handle.

Soon after this, singer Sona Mohapatra revealed that her husband, music composer Ram Sampath had also faced the same issues what AR Rahman has gone through.


She retweeted Swamy’s tweet and wrote, “This ‘illiterate self-important’ gang works against any genuine, classy, dignified, talented creative professional. Felt heartbroken seeing Ram Sampath go through hell, worse, finally plug out of this toxic biotope 3 years ago. The final straw was #Raees .Took him 2yrs to recover post.”

Ram Sampath has composed music for several successful ad jingles and films including ‘Khakee’, ‘Talaash’, ‘Delhi Belly’, ‘Fukrey’ and ‘Boothnath Returns’ and others. His last film as a music director was Shah Rukh Khan starrer ‘Raees’ in 2017.

Talking about composing music for Sushant Singh Rajput’s farewell film ‘Dil Bechara’, Rahman in the Radio Mirchi interview had said, “When Mukesh Chhabra came to me, I gave him four songs in two days. He told me, ‘Sir, how many people said don’t go, don’t go to him (AR Rahman) and they told me stories after stories.’ I heard that, and I realised, yeah okay, now I understand why I am doing less (work in Hindi films) and why the good movies are not coming to me. I am doing dark movies, because there is a whole gang working against me, without them knowing that they are doing harm.”

He further added, “People are expecting me to do stuff, but there is another gang of people preventing that from happening. It is fine, because I believe in destiny, and I believe that everything comes from God. So, I am taking my movies and doing my other stuff. But all of you are welcome to come to me. Make beautiful movies, and you are welcome to come to me.”
