Rahman is certainly the man of the moment, a name which is famous even on the slum children"s mouth.
Indian music maestro, A.R. Rahman has won two Oscars awards for Best Original song for “Jai Ho" and best background score. Rahman's win comes as the crowning glory and he truly deserves the honour, not just for this movie, but for the fabulous music he has been making for over a decade. Our heartiest congratulation goes to the musical genius A.R. Rahman. Let us take a sneak peak at his filmi (musical) career graph.
Born in Madras (now Chennai) on 6th January, 1966, Allah Rakha Rahman played many instruments and later joined people like Zakir Hussain, M.S. Vishwanathan, and Ramesh Naidu on world tours. He soon obtained a degree in Trinity college, Oxford where he graduated with a degree in western classical music.
Rahman tasted the fruit of success in 1992 by providing music score and sound track to Mani Ratnam"s Roja. He was awarded with Rajat Kamal and best music director at National film awards.
