Legendary Bollywood Composer A.R. Rahman Visits Toronto To Promote New Films

Widely regarded as a legend in his native India, iconic composer A.R. Rahman was the creative force behind the score of the Oscar-winning film Slumdog Millionare. Born in Chennai, India, Rahman has been in the music business for 25 years, but realized his passion for sound early in life. The international talent began his career playing music in his father’s studio, and later mastered instruments like the keyboard, piano, guitar and synthesizer. Today, Rahman has successfully graduated from a curious young boy to a successful artist with a global fan base.

Recently, the Academy Award and Grammy-winning maestro visited Toronto for a red carpet event at the Sony Centre for the Performing Arts, in partnership with newly launched company Ideal Entertainment. Real Style spoke to Rahman about his film 99 Songs, which features his score, and his directorial debut Le Musk.
