A.R. Rahman Biography

A. R. Rahman is an Indian composer, musician, singer, and music producer who works predominantly in Tamil and Hindi films. In 2010, the Indian government awarded him the Padma Bhushan, the nation's third-highest civilian award. Rahman has won two Academy Awards and two Grammy Awards, among many other honors.

Rahman initially composed scores for different documentaries and jingles for advertisements and Indian television channels. With his in-house studio Panchathan Record Inn, Rahman's film-scoring career began during the early 1990s with the Tamil film Roja. Following that, he went on to score several songs for Tamil language films, including Ratnam's politically-charged Bombay, the urban Kadhalan, Thiruda Thiruda, and S. Shankar's debut film Gentleman. Rahman's score for his first Hollywood film, the 2009 comedy Couples Retreat, won the BMI Award for Best Score. His music for 2008's Slumdog Millionaire earned him Best Original Score and Best Original Song at the 81st Academy Awards. He was also awarded Best Compilation Soundtrack Album and Best Song Written for Visual Media at the 2010 Grammy Awards. He is nicknamed "Isai Puyal" (musical storm) and "Mozart of Madras."

Rahman is a respected humanitarian and philanthropist, donating and raising money for a number of causes and charities. In 2006, he was honored by Stanford University for his contributions to global music. In 2008, he received the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Rotary Club of Madras. In 2009, he was included on the Time list of the world's 100 most influential people. In 2013, he introduced 7.1 surround-sound technology to South Indian films. In 2014, he was awarded an honorary doctorate from Berklee College of Music. He has also received an honorary doctorate from Aligarh Muslim University.
