I came across an interview of ARR - a old one - this was before Bombay Dreams. I would rate this interview as one of the best ARR's interviews I have read for it covers a lot of things which are not usually covered in interviews - ARR talks about his style of working, his so-called repetitiveness, and so on. And, he is extremely candid and open in this interview!

But there's one other reason due to which I luv this interview. There are many questions which I always have about Rahman's music - questions which I feel, I should ask him if I get a chance meet him and Rahman has answered those questions in this interview! For instance, I always wonder what motivates him to spends time adding those minute effects, those new sounds, which one can hardly notice.
Rahman answers this question:
"I think, if I am bored, what of the audience? So then I try to do something about that boredom, mine and that of the audience. I might, for instance, insert a little sound somewhere, you won't even hear it the first time, or the second or third, but suddenly, one day when you are listening to that song you think, 'Hey, that sound, I didn't hear that before'. And you start listening to the familiar song with,
what shall I say, new ears!"
