In an recent interview to Sun TV, Pyramid Natarajan who provided the first cheque to A.R Rahman during the composition of Roja has revealed the amount and shared a lovely incident of himself with the legendary musician.

While remembering most memorable day of his life, Natarajan says “While I was in Kavithalaya office, boy came in and said that Dileep (original name of A.R. Rahman) has come to the office. When I asked him to come, Rahman came in with a single keyboard. Then he started to compose “Chinna Chinna Aasai” song’s tune after getting my nod. As soon as he composed Vairamuthu pitched the lyrics and we almost finished the song within minutes. After I started my own production venture Pyramid films, many movies such as love birds were composed by Rahman” says Natarajan who is about to share the main incident yet.

“In Bombay dreams musical show, Rahman introduced me to a VIP by saying that I am his first film’s producer. He also stated that I am the one who paid him the first cheque to him to which he casually asked how much. To that Rahman said that I paid him Rs. 25,000 which was only in the agreement. I paid only Rs.5,000 at that time.” Laughs Natarajan.

Natarajan remembered the humbleness of the musician who introduced him to a biggest personality without forgetting the initial stage of his career. A.R Rahman won the National Film Award for Best Music Direction, Filmfare Award for Best Music Director – Tamil and the Tamil Nadu State Film Award for Best Music Director for his work. This soundtrack is among the “10 Best Soundtracks” of all time listed by TIME magazine, issued in 2005.

Rahman is currently working on Bigil about which he said that he hasn’t worked in the film’s genre in India and that’s what makes the project exciting for him. “I have done this genre in Hollywood but this would be the first time in south India. Atlee is a fan of my films like Lagaan and Pele. He’s heard these soundtracks and he is musically very passionate. I enjoy working with such director who gets involved in music composing,” Rahman said in an interview to a popular entertainment portal.
