AN ear-shot away from the host of the event, AR Rah­man is seem­ingly obliv­i­ous of the au­di­ence seated be­fore him as he con­tin­ues to whis­per to her. Re­sem­bling an ebul­lient child fer­vent to share his joy with his pals, the mae­stro gives us a peek into a side less known, as he hur­ries her to call out names of his as­so­ciates seated in the crowd, even be­fore her eyes can catch them on her cue card.

He makes cer­tain to not miss a name that went be­hind the cre­ation of the Slum­dog Mil­lion­aire sound­track as we gather at a small Dhar­avi school (home to Rah­man-led The Dhar­avi Project) to mark 10 years since the film brought In­dia, Os­car glory.
