A title 'Sur Shehanshah' was conferred on Rahman by C Narayana Reddy. Susheela crowned AR Rahman with a swarna kireetam (golden crown) and adorned AR Rahman's mother with swarna kankanam (golden bracelet).
Said Rahman: "Telugu music directors have helped me in my struggling days. I am here today, not for the golden crown, but a goldmine called P Susheela. If I adore any singer, it has to be P Susheela. It is a great honor bestowed on me and I would like to thank her".
AR Rahman also crooned "Jai Ho.." on the request of crowds.
