After winning the Golden Globe in January, the music wizard has now bagged the award which is considered as the British Oscars - The BAFTA award in the best music score category. The Anil Kapoor-Irfan Khan starrer SLUMDOG MILIONAIRE had 11 BAFTA nominations and it won prizes for best film, best director, original screenplay, music, cinematography, editing and sound. However, the film's 18-year-old star Dev Patel lost to Mickey Rourke (THE WRESTLER) in the best actor category.
Now all eyes are set on Oscars (to be held on 22nd February) where the film has been nominated including Rahman's three nominations - one for Best Score and two for his songs 'O Saya' and 'Jai Ho'. And we are pretty confident of Rahman coming out with flying colours at Oscars too.
