AR Rahman ‘humbled’ by Screen Award
He has multiple Oscars and Grammys to his credit, but composer AR Rahman, who was awarded the best music director’s gong at last night’s Screen Awards, is “humbled” by the new accolade coming his way.
In a post on Facebook, the 46-year-old music maestro expressed his gratitude to the jury and his fans for the award he won for his music in the Ranbir Kapoor starrer Rockstar, directed by Imtiaz Ali.
“I am thrilled and humbled… Would like to thank the Screen Awards jury, my fans and the whole team of Rockstar -Imtiaz, the producers Ashtavinayak, Eros, Ranbir, Nargis (Fakhri), Irshad (Kamil), Mohit (Chauhan) and my lovely team… Above all, Almighty God for filling me up with music, still,” Rahman wrote.
Post his Oscar wins for Slumdog Millionaire, Rahman’s Bollywood project have become few and far between owing to his work commitments abroad. His music will next be heard in Gautham Menon’s film Ek Dewaana Tha.
