Lo and behold India! 'Cause A. R Rahman has made us proud again! He has been nominated for the 2017 Oscars in the Best Original Score category for the film "Pele: Birth Of A Legend", competing with 145 others in the same category. Also, the song Ginga from the same film, has been shortlisted in the Original Song category along with 91 other songs.
The final nominations for the 89th Academy Awards will be announced on January 24, 2017 while the presentation ceremony will take place on February 26, 2017.
His mystical composition Jai Ho had won him the Oscars for Best Original Score and Best Original Song in 2009 and we pray that history repeats itself this year as well.
All the best, Rahman!
