Rahman is receiving rave reviews for his Slumdog Millionaire soundtrack, but ghazal maestro Jagjit Singh (right) is not a fan.

After lambasting Rahman’s work, saying it’s just an imitation of Western music, Singh has now challenged the Oscar-nominated composer to sing ghazals to prove his talent.

Singh is also unhappy with Gulzar, who has written the song Jai Ho.

“What to say if Gulzar writes such songs… He is a man from [a] great literary background,” Singh told a news channel.
