A.R Rahman invited onto Oscar board
This is another big news for Allah rakkha Rahman’s career. Rahman has won all the known awards for his music. He is the 1995 recipient of the Mauritius National Award and the Malaysian Award for contributions to music.
He was nominated for a Laurence Olivier Award for his first West-End production. A four time National Film Award winner and conferred the Padma Shri from the Government of India, Rahman has received six awards for Best Music at the Tamil Nadu State Film Awards and eleven awards for his scores at the Filmfare and Filmfare Awards South each. In 2006, he received an honorary award from Stanford University for contributions to global music. A 2008 Critics Choice Awards winner for Best Composer, Rahman became the first Indian national to win a Golden Globe, winning for Slumdog Millionaire in the category of Best Original Score.
Wow, what an enormous achievement so soon, so young Allah Rakha Rahman, born A.S. Dileep Kumar on January 6, 1966, in Madras (now Chennai), India, to a musically affluent family--for him it seems sky is the limit
