Musician A.R. Rahman, lyricist Gulzar and sound designer Resul Pookutty are the trinity — the Brahma, Vishnu and Mahesh — of Indian Cinema, said Maharashtra Governor K. Sankaranarayanan.

The governor was speaking at the launch of the Malayalam autobiography of the Oscar-winning sound designer, ‘Shabdatharapadham’, late Thursday evening. He presented the first copy of the book to Rahman.

Congratulating all three for their contribution to the Indian film industry, Sankaranarayanan credited them for the success of Oscar-winning film “Slumdog Millionaire”.

“Resul’s work as a sound designer, production mixer, editor and post-production re-recording mixer, has brought international acclaim to Indian cinema,” the governor said.

Lyricist and filmmaker Gulzar and musical maestro Rahman also congratulated Pookutty for coming up with the autobiography in a short time.

‘Shabdatharapadham’ has been co-authored by Baiju Natarajan.

The autobiography has been published by Penguin Books India and supported by the Malayala Manorama publications.

Executive Editor of Malayala Manorama Jacob Mathew, Chairman of the Leela Group Captain C.P. Krishnan Nair, Resident Editor of Penguin Books Dileep Raj, cricketer S. Sreesanth and other eminent personalities were present on the occasion.
