Music director A.R. Rahman has won a Golden Globe award in the Best Original Score category for his music in British director Danny Boyle‘s uplifting underdog tale, Slumdog Millionaire!

Slumdog Millionaire lived up to its underdog theme at the Golden Globes, sweeping all four of its categories, including Best Drama and Best Director for Danny Boyle!

Slumdog Millionaire also won Best Screenplay and Best Musical Score, firming up its prospects for the Academy Awards.

Featuring a generally unknown cast in a story set on the streets of Mumbai, Slumdog Millionaire knocked off four other nominated films featuring such stars as Brad Pitt, Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio.

The film tells the heart warming story of an 18-year-old orphan from the slums of Mumbai who goes on to win a staggering Rs.20 million on India’s “Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?” game show.

Bollywood Buzz congratulates A.R.Rahman & the entire crew of Slumdog Millionaire!

AR Rahman who won a Golden Globe Award was born on January 6,1961.His fate number is 29
that adds up to 2.Since 29 is his fate number,the year 2009 is highly significant for him.
Numerologically,numbers 2 and 7 are highly interconnected.See,he is now 43 years old(4+3=
7).His occult number is 21.
It is notable that Rahman won the award at the 66th(6+6=12)Golden Globes.

OOOOOOOOOOOOh Ravi. Have you heard?

AR Rahman has been nominated for the following Oscars: Original Score for Slumdog Millionaire; Original Song Jai Ho from Slumdog Millionaire (with Gulzar) and O Saya from Slumdog Millionaire with Maya Arulpragasam

So that means he has been nominated 3 times in 2 categories…Fabulous honestly….
