New York honour for RahmanPublished: October 22, 2015
The Bharathiya Vidya Bhavan of New York honoured music maestro A R Rahman with World Icon award recently. The Mozart of Madras is obviously so happy about it.
“I felt nostalgic and humbled by NewYork Nagaram’s Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan’s honour today. எல்லாப் புகழும் இறைவனுக்கே,” the Oscar-Grammy winner posted on his online page.
Presently, Rahman is composing music for football legend Pele’s biopic, titled ‘Pele: Birth of a Legend’. In Kollywood, he is busy with a string of projects, including Gautham Vausdev Menon’s ‘Achcham Yenbadhu Madamaiyada’.
Recently, Rahman met Pele in Kolkata. Before meeting Pele, Rahman posted on his micro-blogging page, “Excited to meet Pele this evening in Kolkata!” After the meeting, he uploaded a picture of him with Pele and wrote: “With the awesome Pele in Calcutta…!”
