    India's music maestro Allah Rakha Rahman has scooped the BAFTA award in the best music score category for "Slumdog Millionaire", a rags-to-riches story that won six other awards including the Best Film at the star-studded function here.

    Bolstering its chances for the Oscars scheduled later this month, the film based on India's diplomat-turned author Vikas Swarup's novel went into the ceremony with 11 nominations and won prizes for best film, best director, original screenplay, music, cinematography, editing and sound.

    The film, which received 10 Oscar nominations, is now poised to win laurels at the Oscars on February 22.

    Besides Rahman, India's Resul Pookutty received the prize for the best sound for the same film along with Glenn Freemantle, Richard Pryke, Tom Sayers and Ian Tapp.

    Danny Boyle, who directed the film based in the slums of Mumbai was named best director.

    However, the film's 18-year-old star Dev Patel lost to Mickey Rourke (The Wrestler) in the best actor category. Patel is also nominated in the best actor category for the Oscars.
