The biography of musician AR Rahman, titled Notes of a Dream: The Authorized Biography of A.R. Rahman, will hit the stands in August. The Beyond the Clouds (2018) composer had authorised Chennai-based writer Krishna Trilok to pen is biography.
The Mozart of Madras has wooed India and the globe with his music. He has won many honours, including an Academy Award for Slumdog Millionaire (2008). For all his achievements, Rahman the man has remained largely a mystery. The life of the reclusive musician will be penned in the biography he authorised, reported Mid-day.com.
Mid-day.com quoted author Krishna as saying, “We all dream of living a life that will, in some way touch, the world around us positively. And we constantly look to those who have done this, for guidance. It is my honour to share the life story of one of India's biggest stars — a story that is graceful and inspiring proof of the power of love, talent and hard work.”
The book will traverse a fascinating journey that began as a composer of advertisement jingles and has culminated into what is now a magnanimous presence on the international music stage.
Notes of a Dream will be published by Penguin Random House India and will capture “the nostalgia, the drama and the extraordinary success story” of Rahman. The book carries a foreword by Danny Boyle, where the Slumdog Millionaire (2008) director touches upon the human qualities that make Rahman the man he is.
Rahman is a recipient of six National Film Awards, two Academy Awards, two Grammy Awards, a BAFTA Award and a Golden Globe, among several other prestigious national and international honours.
Author Krishna has earlier penned the book, Sharikrida.
