Big B praises Rahman
Superstar Amitabh Bachchan who earlier criticised Slumdog Millionaire through his blog today can’t stop raving the film as well as the two prides of India, AR Rahman and Resul Pookutty to bring the prestigious Oscars home. In spite of his hectic schedule, he manages to find out some time and type down congratulatory note on his blog in honor of the two gems for their achievement.
"I learn of the great achievements of our Indian technicians and music directors at the Oscars. My warmest and heartiest congratulations to A.R. Rahman and Resul for winning recognition in music and sound and to Gulzar for co assisting Rahman in the lyric category. International recognition for Indian film talent on one of the most well known and popular forums is the happiest day for Indians and the Industry. The journey of Indian Cinema has been phenomenal," Big B wrote on his blog, bigb.bigadda.com.
Out of 10 nominations, Slumdog Millionaire won 8. AR Rahman bags two Oscars for background score and original song Jai Ho. He shared the second category of award with lyricist Gulzar.
