Honorary doctorate for Rahman
Oscar winning composer A.R. Rahman will be conferred an honorary doctorate by Aligarh Muslim University (AMU).
Rahman shot to international fame with his compositions in Danny Boyle's underdog drama Slumdog Millionaire and won two golden statuettes for that.
Apart from Rahman, Gopichand Narang, former president of Sahitya Academy, would also be conferred an honorary doctorate at a convocation June 7, said a press release from AMU.
West Bengal governor Gopalkrishna Gandhi will be the chief guest at the 59th annual convocation function. AMU chancellor, A.M. Ahmadi, also former chief justice of India, will preside over the annual event.
