Rahman Oladigbolu came out of a seven-year illness battling sickle cell and began pursuing his dream of making movies. Rahman's battle with sickle cell will bring back memories to me and at the same time remind me of the need for more awareness about this disease. Rahman is now an award-winning director, whose next movie is The Private Experience, an adaptation of Ms. Chimmanda Adichie.   Fun fact: this is the second guest with whom I was in the same city during my younger days. It wasn't planned, just found out while recording. As they say, it's a small world!
