Earlier, AR Rahman was asked what inclined him to turn writer and producer, to this he replied, "Mani Ratnam once said to me that when you know how to make a movie, it's 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. He said that the process is like a story and it just struck me how nice it is to speak in your own language about another art such as story writing. That inspired me. I love stories, I love to study people and their lives; not just people from our Indian culture but from many other cultures as well."
