A.R. Rahman won the award for best musical score for Slumdog Millionaire at the 66th Golden Globe Awards held at Los Angeles. The award was announced a few minutes ago.
Rahman’s song Jai Ho has won the award for Best Original Music Score. Slumdog Millionaire is not the first international assignment for A.R. Rahman: he has already composed for Heaven and Earth, a Chinese film; Shekar Kapur’s Elizabeth; and musicals Bombay Dreams and The Lord of the Rings.
But A.R. Rahman had quite a great deal of time for composing the music of these projects, whereas he took only three weeks to score Slumdog Millionaire’s musical score! It is indeed a tremendous achievement!
Congrats to the composer. We are proud of you!
