A R Rahman proved once again why he is a composer who stands apart in the crowd. He was awarded two Oscar awards, for Best Original Score and Best Song in the movie. It was the song ‘Jai Ho’ which won the much-acclaimed award and Rahman provided a glimpse of his brilliance as he performed it live at the Oscars. The other award which he received was for the original score in the movie.
Rahman was in a dark black sherwani and said in his usual humble manner that the reason for his being there was him choosing love between love and hate in life! The entire team of Slumdog Millionaire was ecstatic after grabbing 8 Oscar awards thereby making it appear like a one-sided affair!
AR Rahman with these awards has proved that he is a musician and composer with that extra fizz that makes him a lone crusader in his league. For all of you who wish to have a look at his genius in this movie, you could enjoy the feet-thumping music by watching the following videos of O Saya, Jai Ho, Ringa Ringa, and more!
