AR Rahman won Two Oscar, Catchy Lines from Fans



I am so glad I saw him live performing 3 years back :)


I am so excited and want to share few lines and interesting facts from Fans world wide
Let me know if you come across some

[Deepak]From Leo Coffee to Slum Dog....!
Kodambakkam to Kodak
WARNING #3: Anil Kapoor on STAGE! Possibility of talking: 73.7%.

[prads] O'09. Rahman & Resul Pookutty (Sound Mix) have joined Bhanu Athaiya & Satyajit Ray in the list of Oscar-winning Indians. Count Ben Kingsley?
Slumdog Millionaire, undoubtedly has brought the best out of Kerala-born sound engineer Resul Pookutty besides helping him win an Oscar.

Hailing from a small village of Vilakkupara in Kerala’s Kollam district which didn’t have electricity, he studied under a kerosene lamp.

He then went to the Film and Television Institute of India, Pune from where he graduated in 1995.

[prad]Smile Pinki (2008) is a 39 minute Academy Award winning documentary directed by Megan Mylan. The film shows the captivating story of a desperately poor girl in rural India whose life is transformed when she receives free surgery to correct her cleft lip. The documentary was made in Hindi and Bhojpuri, and won the 81st Academy Award for Best Documentary (Short Subject).

[Kartik]Yay ARR! ... And spare a thought for Anil Kapoor, who jumped on to stage first to get prime publicity :D

[Sud]I grew up listening to AR Rahman and is floating on Cloud 9.

[Smrithi] She is proud Slumdog Millionaire won 8/9 nominations, and is happy that Rahman won both his, performed live, AND ended his acceptance in Tamizh, my mother

[nashirfan]You know what guyz... A R Rahman didn't get the oscars... The Oscars got A R Rahman... Jai Hoooo Rahman Sir... U make me proud to be an indian ... tongue!!!

[2729959] {After AR Rahman spoke a line in tamil}I hate to break it to you guys but AR Rahman is actually a malayalee. so yea i say to you im proud to be indian and a malayalee. sorry just had to point that out :)

[tantreec]the best part is that he won it for one of his mediocre compositions!! (considering what he's created in the last 20 years)

[Wiki] Screenwriter Simon Beaufoy wrote Slumdog Millionaire based on the Boeke Prize winning and Commonwealth Writers' Prize nominated novel Q & A by Vikas Swarup
