No amount of stardom will ever consume my soul and I will always remain a common man, says Oscar-winning musician A R Rahman.

New Delhi: 48-year-old music composer A R Rahman, who is the only Indian to bring home two Oscars, a Golden Globe and a Grammy award, says he is not overawed by fame and money.

"When you do something with a lot of honesty, appetite and commitment, the input reflects in the output. Success comes to those who dedicate everything to their passion in life. To be successful it is also very important to be humble and never let fame or money travel to your head.

"I was a common man and I will always remain a common man. No amount of stardom will ever consume my soul. Money comes, money goes. Fame comes, fame goes. I believe every human being is a celebrity in their own right," Rahman told us in an interview.

He made a glorious start in 1992 with 'Roja' whose songs like "Dil hai chhota sa" and "Ye hasi wadiya" became instant hits. He most recently composed for Hindi film 'Raanjhanaa'.

Rahman candidly says that he still has a long way to go in the music world.
