Rahman creates history, gets 3 Oscar nominations

Music genius AR Rahman has made India proud. He became the gem of India and Indian music after getting nomination for three songs from Slumdog Millionaire. Rahman is nominated for best original score and for two songs in the film, "Jai ho" and "O saya".

After the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in Los Angeles, US announced the award, proud Rahman quipped,  "I love this film. The nominations have given me a great feeling. My inspiration to compose the music was the movie itself, its thought and the message in the film."

He thanked his technicians for the achievement. "Everyone has worked very hard for the film and I am actually feeling on top of the world right now. I want to thank everyone for their wishes."

"The beauty of music is that we don't think about awards while creating it. I'm very happy that I'm with my family at the moment. All members of the film are very excited. It will surely be a great energy booster for all the musicians in the country," said Rahman

Slumdog Millionaire directed by British filmmaker got seven more nominations including for best director, best picture and best adapted screenplay.

Our best wishes are with AR Rahman. Hope he brings Oscar to India.
