The laurels however continue for Rahman even as the year comes to a close. On December 16th, A.R.Rahman was made a fellow of the world famous Trinity College of Music at a function in UK. This is yet another honour for the musical genius.
That's not all, Rahman has even been nominated for the 'Person of the Year' award by Forbes India business magazine. The talented composer finds himself in august company of personalities such as Nandan Nilekani, Chetan Bhagat, Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Rahul Gandhi all of whom would be vying for Forbes India's 'Person of the Year' award. The final winner will be selected on the basis of public voting.
Whether Rahman eventually wins or not, this is surely yet another feather in the already impressive cap of the musical genius.
2009 is a year AR Rahman won't forget for a long time to come. After all, this year the music maestro won 2 Academy Awards for his score in Slumdog Millionaire. Later in the year, he even received 2 Grammy nominations for the soundtrack of Slumdog Millionaire. Surely it has been a memorable year for AR Rahman.
