image The thought of an Indian winning two Oscars is still to sink in for most of the cinema fans. A.R.Rahman who is the toast of the country hasn’t reached this stage without sheer passion for what he does best – music.

A.R.Rahman’s brother-in-law, who is also named Rahman, is a well known actor in Kerala and has done roles in many Tamil movies like Sangamam, which again had music by A.R.R. Talking to the media after his brother-in-law won the Oscars, the actor revealed how passionate the maestro is about his music.

“It is his sheer commitment towards music that has brought him here”, says Rahman. He adds that the Mozart of Madras always had his harmonium with him.

“Even during his honeymoon in Kodaikanal, we were told that in the middle of the night he was sitting in the next room and playing a harmonium. Such was his dedication”

A.R.R’s ever media-shy wife Saira Banu had walked the red carpet with her husband at the Kodak Theatre for the 81st Annual Academy Awards. Saira Banu was seen clinging to Rahman’s right arm throughout the ceremony.

A.R.Rahman before leaving to the US for the Oscars had commented: “In fact winning an Oscar is not my dream, it’s my wife’s dream”.
