Interacting with the media at an event here, Rahman said singing in Punjabi was easier than Hindi.
“First of all, I am singing in Punjabi, nobody complimented me,” he said.

Rahman, who is known for going behind the mike for Tamil hits such as ‘Oruvan Oruvan’ (Muthu), ‘Sandakkozhi’ (Aaytha Ezhuthu) and ‘Athiradee’ (Sivaji), has sung hit numbers in Hindi like ‘Hamma Hammma’ and ‘Khwaja mere khwaja’.

When asked how did he pick up the language, Rahman said, "I am a fan of the language, I have been listening to Nusrat (Fateh Ali Khan) saab's songs for the past 25 years. So, it was just affection for the language.” “Then, of course, working with Subhash Ghai and (late) Yash Chopra jee (helped). It was easier than Hindi," he added.

Alia Bhatt and Randeep Hooda starrer ‘Highway’ will hit theatres on February 21.
