It’s raining awards on A.R. Rahman! Right from the beginning of this year, the Mozart of Madras has been receiving one award after another. First, it was the Annual Critics’ Choice Award; then, it was the Golden Globe; then the Oscar nominations and now, it is the BAFTA.
The maestro bagged the ‘Best Music Score Award’ for Slumdog Millionaire at the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) Awards yesterday. The movie swept the BAFTA Awards, bagging 7 awards out of 11 nominations.
After becoming the first Indian to win the Golden Globe, Rahman has become the first Indian to win a BAFTA award. With just two weeks to go before the 81st Academy Awards, this BAFTA has boosted India’s Oscar hopes through Rahman.
