Resul Pookutty launched his Autobiography 'SABDATHARPADHAM - THE SOUND OF MILKY WAY' with the dignitaries and icons of music industry. The Oscar-winning sound designer Resul Pookutty announced his autobiography last evening at Leela Kempinski released by Maharashtra Governor K. Sankaranarayanan. The first copy of the book was handed over to Academy and Grammy Award winning music maestro A R Rehman and in the august presence of eminent lyricist Gulzar. The book is a travelogue of an ordinary person who confronts extraordinary situations. It is an oral narrative journey which is an interesting mix of music, life, philosophy, family, friends and humour. The Malayalam version of the book will soon be releasing in the English version.
Commenting on the launch of the book A R Rehaman said, "Resul has got India proud. It's an honour to get the first copy of Resul's autobiography. My best wishes are always with Resul for his success and would request every Indian to read his inspiring and life stirring book. Adding to the occasion, Gulzar said, "I would first congratulate Resul for his excellent performance. He has taken India on the world map with his talent in music and technology. I'm happy and inspired working with such young and brilliant men of India."
The ball room of the hotel was full house at this launch, everyone wanted to see Resul, meet him personally and hear his story. A R Rehman, Gulzar, Jacob Mathew, Executive Editor & Director of Malyalam Manorama and Hon. Governor Sankaranarayanan seemed engrossed in Resul's story and discussing the contents of the book.
Resul spoke about the good times and the tough times and answered questions hurled at him with poise. He said, "The idea behind my book is my manager cum friend Baiju Natarajan. He is the co-author of my autobiography, the brain behind every line framed in the book. The book talks about my journey from Kerala to Mumbai. It is easy to be genuine in front of the mirror but difficult in the book. Baiju supported me throughout to be honest and genuine while writing the book."
The launch was a great success and made people laugh with Resul's quick sense of humour. A stimulating evening that left guests completely in awe of the young man!
