Regarded as the finest Indian film composer of his time, Allah Rakha Rahman - better known as A.R. Rahman - spent a great portion of his career amassing awards and acclaim in his native India before earning international renown for his wildly successful score for "Slumdog Millionaire" (2008), which featured the global hit song "Jai Ho." After starting his film career composing the acclaimed score for "Roja" (1992), which was named one of the "Top 10 Movie Soundtracks of All Time" by TIME magazine in 2005, Rahman quickly became one of the most decorated composers in all of India, collecting numerous awards, including a handful of National Film Awards, India's equivalent to the Oscars. He broke through internationally with his score for "Dil Se" (1998), which featured the popular hit "Chaiyya Chaiyya," before earning high praise for his internationally recognized compositions for "Lagaan" (2001). Rahman took his first steps toward Hollywood with his work on "Elizabeth: The Golden Age" (2007) before teaming with British director Danny Boyle on "Slumdog Millionaire," which vaulted the composer to international stardom that resulted in the successful "A.R. Rahman Jai Ho Concert: The Journey Home World Tour" (2010). By the time he reunited with Boyle to compose the score for the harrowing "127 Hours" (2010), Rahman had cemented his place as India's most internationally acclaimed and successful musicians.
