British director Danny Boyle, who worked with A.R. Rahman in two of his movies, calls the Indian composer a "genius" and says he loves the fact that the musician is so simple despite his "extraordinary fame".

"Rahman is something of a genius. But he's also very simple and I love that quality about him. He's straightforward despite his almost extraordinary, supernatural fame! I feel extremely lucky to have worked with him twice," Boyle said on BIG CBS PRIME's "India's Prime Icon".

Rahman created music for Boyle's 2008 Oscar winning film "Slumdog Millionaire", which also won the musician two golden statuettes.

Following its success, Rahman composed for the director's "127 Hours", for which he got two nominations for the Academy Awards.

The composer, also known as Mozart of Madras, has given Bollywood some of its most memorable melodies, including "Taal se taal mila" and "Dil se re".

Rahman will feature on "India's Prime Icon", which shows works of popular icons of the country from different walks of life.
