New Delhi, Feb 1 (IANS) When Indian music maestro A.R. Rahman was composing the song 'Jai ho', he didn't envisage that the composition would become such a rage and win him laurels and awards across the globe.
The song features in British filmmaker Danny Boyle's 'Slumdog Millionaire', which is a screen adaptation of Indian author and diplomat Vikas Swarup's novel 'Q & A'.
The composition in the film has won Rahman the most prestigious international awards including, the Oscars, the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA), Critics Choice Award, The Golden Globe and now the music industry's biggest honour - the Grammys.
The song that was penned by lyricist Gulzar and Tanvi Shah, was crooned by Sukhvinder Singh, Mahalaxmi Iyer, Vijay Prakash with support from Rahman and Shah.
Rahman, who started his career with director Mani Ratnam's 1992 Tamil film 'Roja', made his presence felt and has gone up several notches in terms of popularity after the super success of the song 'Jai ho'. It made Rahman the most successful Indian composer in the global arena.
