Once again, the ‘Oscar’ winning music maestro A. R. Rahman has made India proud by bringing international honors home. He, who gave Indian music global recognition, has been nominated for ‘Golden Globe Awards’ for the second time.
Apparently, his marvelous musical score in the flick ‘127 Hours’, directed by Danny Boyle, has fetched him nomination in the ‘Best Original Score’ category.
‘If I Rise’, the popular song in which Rahman was assisted by pop star Dido, has created wonders.
Under the same category, Rahman will be seen competing with Alexandre Desplat for ‘The King’s Speech’, Danny Elfman for ‘Alice in Wonderland’, Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross for ‘The Social Network’ and Hans Zimmer for ‘Inception’.
The 44 year old singer won his first ‘Golden Globe Award’ last year in the same category for his excellent music in ‘Slumdog Millionaire’. He also won two ‘Oscars’ for his score in the same flick.
Directed by the British filmmaker Danny Boyle, ‘Slumdog Millionaire’, the Mumbai based potboiler, had 10 ‘Academy Awards’ nominations, out of which, it won eight.
Rahman, fondly known as the ‘Mozart of Madras’, has also been honored with ‘Padma Bhushan Award’ this year.
