Indian music maestro A.R. Rahman has won two oscars for Original music score and for Original music song. It’s not only his dream that has turned into reality at the 81st annual Academy Awards, it’s a milestone for Bollywood too.

It’s a tremendous achievement both for Rehmann and Bollywood.The whole of Bollywood celebrated as Rahman bagged the Oscars for best original score in ‘Slumdog Millionaire’ and its theme song ‘Jai Ho’. This amazing music director has created a history that would be remembered by all of us for ages to come.

Before this, only two Indians have won the Oscar in its 80 year history – Satyajit Ray was given the prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award in 1992 and Bhanu Athaiya won the best costume design Oscar along with John Mollo for the 1982 film ‘Gandhi.’

Rahman, the first Indian musician to win the annual Academy Award, was listed for three of the film’s ten Oscar nominations – one for his original score and two others for songs composed by him, ‘O Saya’ and ‘Jai Ho’.

The international recognition that Rahman has earned for himself makes every Indian proud. He deserves it more than anybody else for his wholehearted dedication to music. It’s a rare honour. It’s high time for all of us to congratulate the Music Maestro AR Rehmann for all his passion towards music that has made the whole of India proud.
