"I don't want my music to be bigger than the movies unless music is part of the narrative," Rahman said while addressing a session at Film Bazaar.

With two Grammy Awards and two Academy Awards in his kitty, Rahman, also known by the sobriquet 'Mozart of Madras', has earned a respectable name in the music world.

He shared that he's always eager to work with new filmmakers as together they can find a 'new zone'. However, the musician is apprehensive to take up small movies.

Rahman started his journey by composing scores for documentaries and TV shows before he got his first movie break with 1992 release 'Roja'.

Since then, he has composed soul-rendering music in films like 'Rangeela', 'Taal', 'Dil Se', 'Jodhaa Akbar', 'Swades', 'Rang De Basanti', 'Rockstar', 'Jab Tak Hai Jaan' and 'Raanjhanaa'.

He got his first international break when Andrew Lloyd Webber invited him to compose music for the Broadway musical 'Bombay Dreams', which won him immense fame.

He also composed for the stage adaptation of JRR Tolkien's 'Lord Of The Rings' that premiered in Canada in 2006 and in London in 2007. And who can forget his famous 'Slumdog Millionaire', which won him an Oscar.
