Rahman said, “I expected this, and I knew why also because everything was so complicated.” When Rahman asked if Kapoor liked any song at all, Ali said that Rishi told him that he “didn’t understand anything.”
The music director continued, “(Imtiaz) said, ‘No, we all like it. I said we all liked it but did you play it to anyone? Imtiaz said, ‘I played to Ranbir’s dad (Rishi Kapoor) and he didn’t like any of the songs.

Then Rahman himself asked Ali, “He didn’t like even one song?” Imtiaz replied, “No, he said, ‘I didn’t understand anything, couldn’t get the songs.”
After hearing this, the Slumdog Millionaire composer replied, “So then I said I’m not going to compose what we are supposed to do.
I’ll go back and do another song. So that’s how Nadaan Parindey was born. It was very important to get that comment, which changed my outlook towards this song.”
