English musician and actor Sting has expressed keen interest in a possible collaboration with Indian legendary singer A.R. Rahman.
The 72-year-old musician shared his thoughts in an interview with Rolling Stone India and delved into various topics, including his memories of India, his stance on collaborations, activism, acting, and the legacy he wants to leave behind.
While discussing his plans, the “Desert Rose” hitmaker mentioned his intention to meet Rahman during his recent trip to Mumbai. “I was gonna have a meeting last night with A.R. Rahman, but he got stuck in an airport somewhere. So it didn’t happen,” the musician said.
Despite the setback, Sting expressed optimism, stating, “We’ll meet eventually, and we’ll discuss a collaboration, perhaps.”
Sting’s initial visit to India was in 1980 with The Police bandmates Stewart Copeland and Andy Summers. During the interview, Sting also shared that he’s visited India plenty of times outside of work.
