Music composer AR Rahman’s biography will be out sometime next year, and is being written by 24-year-old Krishna Trilok. In conversation with The News Minute, the young writer revealed what to expect from the Oscar winner’s book.
Being the third biography on Rahman, the book will focus on the lesser-known aspects of his life such as his daily routines, and life outside of his work.
“The book will feature some nice anecdotes from all the people that he’s worked with in his earlier years — Bharat Bala, Mani Ratnam, Sharda and Trilok Nair, who introduced him, Vijay Modi — who ran Audio Vision where he recorded his earlier jingles, Rajeev Menon, Rahman’s sisters Raihana and Fathima, Jyoti Nair Belliappa from KM Music conservatory, a few film directors, R Samidurai, his man Friday right from the 70s, his audio engineers, his business manager-Karan Grover and Vijay Iyer, his personal manager. They have all shared some interesting stories, like what he thought of Mani Ratnam and Tamil films before becoming part of the industry,” Krishna Trilok told TNM.
The young writer also revealed that the book will focus on some of Rahman’s works including One Heart, 99 Songs, and Le Musk.
