Rahman's shocker about suicide
 
Double Oscar winner Rahman surprised all by saying he thought of committing suicide. Rahman who released the biography on him penned by Krina Triok, Notes of a Dream: The Authorized Biography of AR Rahman, he said  “Up until 25, I used to think about suicide. Most of us feel we are not good enough. I lost my father..., there was this void... There were so many things happening. (But) that in a way made me more fearless. Death is a permanent thing for everyone. Since everything created has an expiry date, why be afraid of anything?” 

"Things turned for the better when he built his recording studio Panchathan Record Inn in his backyard in hometown Chennai. “Before that, things were dormant so maybe it (the suicidal feeling) manifested then because of my father’s death. I didn’t do many movies. I got 35 movies and I did two. Everyone wondered ‘How are you going to survive?’ I was 25 then.” 

Rahman revealed “I finished everything between the ages of 12 and 22. It was boring for me to do all the normal stuff. I didn’t want to do it,”

He said “I never liked my original name Dileep Kumar. I don’t even know why I hated it. I felt it didn’t match my personality. I wanted to become another person. I felt like that would define and change my whole (being). I wanted to get rid of all the past luggage,”
