A.R Rahman has become the number one in Kollywood power list and truly the living legend of Tamil cinema after winning two Oscar Awards.

Now everybody who was associated with him even remotely wants to piggy back ride on him. At an audio launch on Monday all the speakers were more interested in praising Rahman and going down memory lane, than speaking about the audio.

Vairamuthu said he had prophesied a long time back that Rahman will get an Oscar. Balu Mahendra said as the jury chairman of National Award committee, it was his casting vote that got Rahman the award for the best music director for Roja over Ilayaraja for Thevar Magan in the same year!

Now everybody wants to be the first to facilitate Rahman on winning the most prestigious award on planet earth- Oscars. On the day of Oscars it was said Rahman would be in Chennai on Wednesday (Feb 25), to attend a live show featuring ARR, Kamal Hassan, Vairamuthu, organized by the U.S Consulate General in Chennai to mark the visit of Martin Luther King 3.

But it looks like Rahman would be in Chennai only late Saturday night, to be in time for Cine Musicians’ Union special felicitation function for winning the coveted Oscar, BAFTA and Golden Globe awards.

This function will take place on 1st March (Sunday) at 6 p.m at the Cine Musicians’ Union Auditorium located at Vadapalani. Dr.M Balamurali Krishna will be the Chief Guest while other dignitaries like K Balachandar, M S Viswananthan and Ilayaraja will grace the occasion along with other eminent members of the music world.
