AR Rahman, composer, singer and music producer, who is best known for winning two Academy Awards, celebrates his birthday on January 6.

Known for composing songs that encapsulate Indian classical with electronic and world music, he has also been recognised with two Grammys, a Golden Globe, six National Film Awards and fifteen Filmfare Awards.

Rahman has also received seventeen Filmfare Awards South and the Padma Bhushan, which he received in 2010.

Rahman, who began his career with the 1992 film Roja, has also composed Rangeela, Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose: The Forgotten Hero, Dil Se.., Rang De Basanti, Tamasha and others.

When the music industry is flowing in a particular pattern, Rahman changed the entire dynamics of the same by experimenting with new sounds, voices and unique instrumentation as well as orchestration. Rahman won a lot of regional and national awards but bagging an Oscar for the film Slumdog Millionaire made him a celebrated music composer of India.

There is a generation that Rahman inspired by his music and stands out as the best. Having born as Dileep Kumar, he later became Alla Rakha Rahman. Rahman worked with a lot of music directors on hundreds of movies, before making his debut as a composer. The music director celebrates his birthday Monday and we extend our best wishes to him on this occasion.
