    great.. very happy and proud for him to get global recognition. agreed that he has given much more better music than slumdog but this international movie showed his talent to the world which the world would not have even known... so great job and thanks slumdog producers and directors to use his music for this film..

    Hmm..i aint bashing him so don''t bash me!
    But i just don''t get it! i can''t disagree with the fact that he makes awesomee music...he really does and i love his music!
    BUT his music in Slumdog Millionaire was not at all as good as his other music..so i don''t understand the hype for his music in that at all! LOL!
    But i do understand and agree with him being honoured and being in the list of the most influencial people coz his music otherwise is amazingg and his music does affect others!
