Rehman Shares His Funniest Oscar Memory WIth Anil Kapoor!
A decade to this iconic oscar win!

Rehman had created history in 2009 as he became the very first Indian to win two Academy Awards in single event.

When the Music composer was asked about the experience as that iconic day completes a decade, he said that he was *starving* to look in shape.

Although the things changed drastically for the music-magician right after he won the awards, but when he was asked about the mental space he had on the eve of the award event, A.R. expressed, “Actually nothing. I was just starving to look thin for the ceremony!” 

 

 

A well-directed drama had managed to hold on to eight trophies out of ten nominations at the 81st Academy Awards. And about Rehman’s music? He reached to the successful heights of global fame with his award winnings, which by the way, also went on to get two more Oscar nominations in 2011 for another original score and song composed for Boyle’s 127 hours.

When asked how difficult was it to get over the success and fame of two Oscars, he said, “Yes. I have moved on because it’s a great identity for me and I needed that identity to be in Hollywood. Now, whenever I am mentioned there, people know my name.” 

He further added, “That helped me move further not just in music, but also producing movies and going into technologies like virtual reality and cinematic virtual reality and so much of the stuff that’s going to come this year. So, all this freedom came with this power.”

The composer shared all these details at the special ceremony that was organised to celebrate the ten glorious years of Oscar win on Monday.

The ceremony took place in Dharavi, as a tribute to Slumdog Millionaire, which narrated a story through the eyes of a poor boy and how he elevated towards prosperity with luck...

Not just did Rehman expressed about his mental space but also narrated an incident on how Ail Kapoor missed watching him win this sparkling Golden Globe award as he went out to get something to drink for Rehman.  “I was sitting next to Anil and I was so thirsty. He was very kind and said he’ll get a Sprite for me. By the time he went and got it, I got the award,” Rehman explained.

Well, Anil says he was so mad for missing the opportunity to see it live... he said “I will never forgive him. I was waiting for him to get an award. An Indian, Rahman sahab going on stage and getting an award but he was thirsty, so I said I will go. There was so much crowd at the bar counter, by the time I was back, he got the award.”

Well, any Indian can understand that pain Mr. Kapoor! Anyways, he further added, “But then I saw the Oscar which was the cherry on the cake. You don’t know what I felt when he went on stage and the song was played. I wish I could break the protocol and start dancing on stage. I had to control myself,” 

 

 

Truly expressed! Afterall, it has to be one of the greatest and proud moment for each one of us. A decade to that iconic day and still so fresh in all of our minds.
