My expectations for an Oscar are very low : A R Rahman
In the wake of Slumdog Millionaire, AR Rahman?s triumphant streak continues. And how!
This week, he walked away with the prestigious BAFTA (British Academy of Film & Television Arts) awards for his music in Slumdog Millionaire.
An exhausted but exhilarated Rahman said from London, ?It came as surprise, not because I didn?t expect it but, because it was announced too soon. Mine was one of the first awards to be announced. I got it from one of my favourite international artistes Kylie Minogue. That was pretty cool.?
Yesterday, Rahman returned from London to Chennai for just a day especially so that he could take his wife, Saira Bano to Los Angeles for the Oscars.
?More than mine, it?s my wife?s dream that I get an Oscar,? said Rahman.
But everything isn?t a cakewalk for Rahman. He is under tremendous pressure to bring home the Oscar. ?I feel like one of our sportspersons at the Olympics who is being told to bring home a gold medal. I hope I don?t let people in India who are expecting me to win the Oscar down. God has already given me much more than I ever expected. I have very low expectations from my nomination at the Oscars. Maybe that?s the kind of person I am,? he said cautiously.
