JAI Ho Rahman

Rahman, our very own A.R.Rahman has finally did it.



He bagged two Oscars for best original score and original song (with gulzar). His acceptance speech was awesome and I’m happy that he talked in Tamil in the end.

Before coming, I was excited and terrified. The last time I felt like that was during my marriage. There’s a dialogue from a Hindi film called “Mere paas ma hai,” which means “I have nothing but I have a mother,” so mother’s here, her blessings are there with me. I am grateful for her to have come all the way. And I want to thank the Academy for being so kind, all the jury members. I want to thank Sam Schwartz, I/D PR, all the crew of Slumdog, Mr. Gulzar,Raqueeb Alam, Blaaze, my musicians in Chennai and Mumbai. And I want to tell something in Tamil, which says, which I normally say after every award which is ella puhazhum iraivanukke: “God is great.” Thank you.

And for the second award for The Best Original Song “JAI HO” acceptance speech,

I just want to thank again the whole crew of SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE, especially Danny Boyle for giving such a great opportunity. And the whole, all the people from Mumbai. The essence of the film which is about optimism and the power of hope in the lives, and all my life I had a choice of hate and love. I chose love and I’m here. God bless”.

Love you Rahman…..

    I also loved his acceptance speech! As well as his music which I thought was really the driving force of optimism in the movie itself. Without it, I think darkness might have claimed me half way through!

    I saw your comment on planetross and loved your avatar or whatever they call them. That is why I decided to come and visit!
