Mumbai: music genius and one of the best musicians in the world A.R. Rahman is all set to get his third Oscar nomination in the best original score category. He is already the winner of two Oscars and he has already made to the list of 114 probables.
Rahman who garnered name and fame following the stupendous success of Bombay has given many hits and has mesmerized the entire world with his mesmerizing music. He is among the top right now in the entire world and innumerable awards won by him speak volume about his ingenuity. Rahman’s body of work for film and stage has given him the nickname of ‘the Mozart of Madras’, and his millions and millions of Tamil fans have given him a nickname of Isai Puyal or the Musical Storm.
He has appeared in many top grossing Hollywood movies including Inside Man, Lord of War, Divine Intervention, The Accidental Husband and the 2009 comedy Couples Retreat. Rahman, who has previously been nominated for 127 Hours and Slumdog Millionaire, for which he won two Oscars, has made it to the list for three of his films including Hollywood movies The Hundred-Foot Journey and Million Dollar Arm and Rajinikanth-starrer Tamil film Kochadaiiyaan.
Despite being so successful, he is humble to the core and as congratulations poured in from fans on twitter, Rahman tweeted in Tamil “All praise is for God”. Girish Malik’s directorial debut Jal, a film based on water scarcity issue, has also found a place among the 100 films shortlisted for nomination in the best picture category as well as in the best original score list for Sonu Nigam and Bickram Ghosh’s rustic compositions.
There is no denying the fact that it is a great film. Jal features in the best picture list as an independent submission, while India will officially be represented in the best foreign feature category by Liar’s Dice. “We directly submitted our film. I believed in our content and that’s why we sent our movie. Two days ago we got the news that our screenplay was acquired by the Oscar library. Now our film is among the 100 films hoping for an Oscar nomination” Jal producer Puneet Singh said. His fans are hoping that their favored composer Allah Rakkha Rahman wins the Oscar again this year.
