Jai Ho - Rahman wins Golden Globe

A first for India, A R Rahamn won Golden Globe for Best Music Score for Slumdog Millionaire. I got goosebumps all over me, when I watched this happening. And this is what he said

"Unbelievable..! I thought, I would not win, so anyway thanks to the almighty God for bringing me here... Danny Boyle, Fox pictures, all my musicians in Chennai, Mumbai,.. and the billion people from India,"

Great Great moment for Indian cinema. Also for Rahman, this is a belated Birthday present.

Meanwhile I got surprised when I read a recent piece of news about song 'Jai Ho'. The song originally was composed for Subhash Ghai's movie 'Yuvvraaj'. But somehow, things were not developed much and Ghai dropped song from movie. When Danny asked Rahman for the same, and by Ghai's consent, the song was taken in 'Slumdog Millionaire'. And that, hit jackpot !!

[I think I have read this on bollywoodhungama.com or ibnlive.com]

Now all eyes are on Oscars. Where I am praying for TWO. One for Rahman and the other for Aamir - Taare Zameen Par, Inshaallah...........

Jai Ho.........

Here is the video of Rahman accepting Golden Globe.


  1. I was watching the Golden Globes last night. It was such a great and proud moment when AR Rahman won! The feeling is just awesome. He should have won such awards ages ago though. Keeping my fingers crossed for the Oscars!

    Yes, he deserved it a lot earlier. Bombay Dreams was Better then Slumdog. [sorry if i sound odd]. Truly that was superb in terms of all compositions.

    Okay, i haven't watched Slumdog, so can't make judgment. But Jai ho...is Larger Then Life track, fabulous.

    Proud, indeed !!

  3. yeah...
    rahman is a supercreative man...

    He is the best music composer, and he uses Sonu Nigam more than any other singer. Imagine a Rehman album without Sonu's song; impossible! That's why Rehman and Sonu are my favorites.

  5. It's great that Rahman got the award, truly. And I like your thought process -- let's get an Indian film that is a Bollywood film to win an Oscar!

  6. Joie de Vivre : Yes, he is. We never know, what he is doing next. He has been always surprising and different.

    the Bollywood Lover : Early years of Sonu, were not much good. Then Rahman gave him Satrangi Re and that changed a lot for Sonu.

    theBollywoodFan : Thanks for your appreciation. And yes, I am willing to see such a movie, which is hardcore Bollywood movie, and worldwide acceptance.
