A.S.Dilip Kumar ---> A.R.Rahman



If there is a god for music then undoubtedly it is none other than A.R.Rahman (Musical God). A.R.Rahman holds the credit for totally overhauling the style in which music was being made in India. Though with a career spanning just over a decade, Rahman has already sold over one hundred million records world-wide and more than two hundred million cassettes. This makes him one of the world's top 10 all-time top selling recording artists. This rare picture was taken when he was four years old. His father, R K Shekhar, who were a composer, arranger and conductor for Malayalam films died when Rahman was just 9 years-old and his family rented out musical equipment as a source of income. Later there was a turning point when Dileep Kumar decided to re christen himself as A R Rahman. This incident happened when Rahman's sister was very ill once. A Muslim friend suggested if he prayed in a particular mosque, his sister would recover and so did happen. This caused the entire family to convert to Islam.





After that he worked hard to bring up his family. In the year 1991 he began his own studio and started making music for advertisements, television channels and so on. The first break in his life was the film Roja in the year 1992 directed by Mani Rathnam. Roja debut made AR Rahman bag the Rajat Kamal award for a best music director at the National Film Awards. This was a historic moment as for the first time ever in Indian film industry; this award was being handed to a first-time film composer. Thus the film Roja brought his career life to the crown.
