In a rare interview (and an absolute honour for Zee), the Mozart of Madras, AR Rahman talks about his musical career, early years and life after fame exclusively on Zee Companion! Interviewed by former Indian pop singer and actor Raageshwari Loomba, he opened up and gave viewers a rare glance into his life, his dad R K Shekhar and his ammi jaan. Rahman also spoke about his latest project Mom – the very first time Rahman has composed for a movie featuring Sridevi.
Viewers of Zee Companion were also treated to an impromptu rendition of Enna Sonna, live on air!
