New Delhi: AR Rahman's music is remembered throughout the world for its charm and variety, but now, even his name will be remembered as a road's name. A street in Markham, Ontario, Canada is named after him. It will be called 'Allah-Rakha Rahman st'.
AR Rahman, who is also known as the Mozart of Madras, has been honoured for his contribution to the world of music and arts.
He is one of the few Indians to have won two Grammy awards and two Academy Awards, yet he retains the humility of a common man.
The music maestro made history when he became the first Indian to win two Oscars in a year, 2009, for Danny Boyle's 'Slumdog Millionaire', the rags-to-riches story of a Mumbai slum-dweller. Rahman had also bagged two awards at the 52nd Annual Grammy for his song 'Jai ho' from the same film.
