He has also been honoured with an award that is the fourth highest civilian award, the Padma Shri, by the Indian Government.
Rahman's recording and mixing studio, which is located in the backyard of his residence, is the most-advanced recording studio in India. Not only this, it is one amongst Asia's most high-tech and sophisticated studios.
'Jai Ho' is shot in places closely associated with Rahman's life, which include Los Angeles, London, Mumbai and also Rahman's hometown Chennai.
