Discovery Channel is set to premiere ‘Jai Ho’, an exclusive 90-minute programme showcasing the spectacular journey of music maestro AR Rahman, spanning two decades and around 130 film scores, and his contribution to catapult Indian film music to the world stage.

Directed by National Award winner Umesh Aggarwal for the Public Service Broadcasting Trust, ‘Jai Ho’ will be aired by the Discovery Channel on Monday, 26 October at 9 pm.

The channel said that the show will take viewers into the life of Rahman and will bring forth the unseen and unheard narrative of one of the greatest musicians the world has ever known.

The programme will explore the evolution of his style of music – a fusion of Eastern sensibilities and Western technology and will highlight the essential Indian-ness of his music which has appealed to people the world over.

Through ‘Jai Ho’, viewers will also get an access into his personal life and his journey right from his coming together with Mani Ratnam for ‘Roja’, his first ever commercial, his Bollywood debut with ‘Rangeela’ to his versatile and successful work in films like ‘Dil Se’, ‘Taal’, ‘Rang De Basanti’, ‘Lagaan’, ‘Highway’, ‘Rockstar’ and ‘Raanjhanaa’, amongst others. Rahman’s name figures foremost in the world of music whenever and wherever India is mentioned.

He gave the music in Danny Boyle’s ‘Slumdog Millionaire’ and bagged his first ever music Oscar for India.
