Kollywood is coming together as a family to honour one of its proud sons. Yes, music wizard A.R. Rahman, who debuted in Tamil films with ace director Maniratnam’s Roja in 1992, has completed two decades in films. A function is to be organized in a grand manner in October to celebrate the occastion. The event is likely to witness the ‘who’s who’ of the Kollywood film fraternity.
Rahman has won many national and international awards including national award for ‘best music director’ and the coveted Oscar and Grammy awards. He is the first Indian music director to have won the Oscar twice when he claimed them for the film Slumdog Millionnaire direted by Danny Boyle more than three years back.
A music troupe by name Raindropss would be hosting event on the 21st of October in Chennai. The event is slated to take place in the sprawling Kamaraj Memorial Hall in Chennai’s Teynampet. Many popular music directors, actors, actresses, lyricists, directors and producers and others are expected to take part in the event which would be a tribute to Rahman’s tireless musical sojourn for the past couple of decades.
Raindropss, by the way, is run by A.R. Raihana, sister of Rahman and a music director in her own right.
