Feb 1 has turned out to be another proud moment for us as music maestro A R Rahman struck gold once again, bagging two trophies at the 52nd Grammy Awards @ Los Angeles for his music in ''Slumdog Millionaire''. Rahman, has already won a Golden Globe and two Academy awards, and has won in both the categories he was nominated for!
Rahmanji was the earliest winner in the best compilation soundtrack for a motion picture category and chalked up another trophy for his song "Jai Ho" in the best motion picture song category moments later. "This is insane, God is great again," an ecstatic Rahman said while accepting the golden gramophones.
Rahman beat Steve Jordan for "Cadillac Records," Quentin Tarantino for "Inglourious Basterds", the producers of "Twilight"(absolutely loved this sountrack too) and "True Blood" to bag the award in the best compilation soundtrack for a motion picture category. In the best song category Rahman''s rivals included Bruce Springsteen for his song "The Wrestler," from the Oscar-nominated movie of the same name.
The other Indians to recieve the Grammy would be Pandit Ravi Shankar and Zakir Hussain.
Keep making us proud Rahman Sir. You are a the best and we all love you :-)
