Today! This is my best day in my life. A.R. Rahman has created history by winning two Oscars and made India proud.This is the first time in the history of Oscars, someone spoke in Tamil while delivering the acceptance speech ” Ella pughalum iraivanuke (All glory and fame is to God)” was how music maestro A R Rahman spoken at Oscars! It was a proud moment for all Tamilan.
I am from his city. I was too happy to see him with Oscars. He also made us proud by speaking Tamil in Oscar. I was too pumped from my heart. I was too proud of him.
He dedicated his Oscars to his “loving” mother Kareema Begum.
Rahman won the awards for the Best Original Song for ‘Jai Ho… .’ and the Best Original Score.
This is the first time that an Indian is walking away with two Oscars and also this is the first time that three Indians are receiving Oscars in the same year. Resul Pookutty has received an award for the best sound mixing.
