From the time AR Rahman won academy awards for his spellbinding musical score in Slumdog Millionaire, the music director has been constantly nominated for the Best Song and Best Background categories for the following years that include Couples Retreat and 127 Hours (Directed by the maker of Slumdog Millionaire).
This year, AR Rahman has been selected for the first round of nomination Oscar shortlist for the film People Like Us that is directed by Alex Kurtzman.
Since Rahman was very much involved into this project, he wasn’t taking up more offers in Tamil industry. It is worth mentioning that there is another Indian musician Sreevalson J Menon from Kerala, who has been selected for the same category for his film Saint Dracula, directed by Roopesh Paul. Fine! The countdown has commenced now and the final list of nominations will be announced on 10 February 2013 followed by the grand academy awards ceremony on 24 February.
Let us keep our fingers crossed hoping for Rahman to bring another honour to India with his musical endeavour.
