It might be true that he had to praise Rahman so much considering that a person of Rahman's stature watched his drama (medai alangaram) but still, there is some truth in his opinion that Rahman is a good man. As a fan of Rahman's music, it means little to me that YGM thinks Rahman is a great human being. But I share his opinion on "khwaja mere khwaja".
