AR Rahman is special: Mani Ratnam

#1
Chennai: Noted filmmaker Mani Ratnam, who introduced A R Rahman to the film industry through Roja, on Monday said he was proud of the music maestro, whose work has been recognised "internationally" after the double Oscar win.

"He is special. Thats all. It doesn't matter which award he gets. All that matters is that his work had been recognised internationally," Maniratnam said.

"We all should be proud of it and I am especially very proud of him," the noted director said when asked for his reaction.

Maniratnam approached Rahman to score music for his Roja in 1991 after seeing him performing at an awards ceremony in Chennai.

Since Roja, Rahman has scored music for all the movies directed by Maniratnam and they almost became indispensable for each other.

"I think every victory is good and Slumdog is a brilliant film and hopefully, very soon, an Indian film will make it at the Oscars," Maniratnam said.

Asked whether he was in the race for Oscars, he said: "No".

Thiruda Thiruda, Bombay, Uyire (Dil Se in Hindi), Alaipayuthae (Saathiya), Kannathil Muthamittal, Guru and Aayutha Ezhuthu were some of the super hit movies in which the duo worked.
