Video: Rahman thanks his audience
Here's your chance to congratulate the legend on his own Fan Page.
Rahman has composed some of the best music for Aamir Khan's movies like Earth 1947, Rangeela, Lagaan, Rang De Basanti and Ghajini. Here's a song from Ghajini called Guzarish.
Another Ghajni song, Behka, was quite a big hit as well. It sees Aamir in six different looks.
Rahman's first Hollywood film Couples Retreat has some Hindi lyrics, mixed beautifully with Western tunes. Here's Sajna.
Genda Phool, from Delhi 6, has a good mix of folk and Western music. Rekha Bhardwaj's voice enhances the song even more.
Singer Mohit Chauhan gets naughty with Masakali, again from Delhi 6. This Abhishek Bachchan-Sonam Kapoor film may not have done well but it has some of the best music.
Rahman has composed some of the best tunes with Subhash Ghai too, through the years. From 1999's Taal to 2008's Yuvvraaj, the composer has always excelled.
Watch Shano Shano, picturised on the film's cast, Salman Khan, Katrina Kaif and Zayed Khan.
Katrina apparently took cello classes for this song, Muskura. Have a look at it.
Singer Rashid Ali's song Kabhi Kabhi Aditi in Jaane Tu... became a rage among youngsters. Rahman, and Aamir, sure know how to please their audiences.
Imran Khan makes this romantic number Kahin Toh look good.
Another Jaane Tu... song, Nazrein Milaana, picks up the tempo, and rocks.
Whether Pappu can dance or not, Rahman can sure make you dance to his music!
Rahman's Taal had some brilliant music, and was one of the key reasons for the film's success.
