Also, 'Maa Tujhe Salaam' will always hold a special place in Rahman's life as he paid tribute to his mother Kareema Begum with the iconic track.
"In all lives, the common factor is, not many people have seen the divine, but we are created through our parents. If we have a sound and love in that life where we get the nurturing of a mother and a father, I think we are stable in mind. I had this in my mind on how to crack it because I was very objective about it, thinking whether patriotism will work or not. So, I was like, forget about the country, let's do it as a personal song, like singing a song for one's mother. That's how it was created," Rahman had said in one of the TV shows. 'Maa Tujhe Salaam' holds Guinness World Records for being the song performed in the most number languages. So, don't forget to croon to this masterpiece this Republic Day.
