NEW DELHI - A.R. Rahman seems to have become a regular at big ticket international awards as the double Oscar-award winning Indian composer has bagged a Golden Globe nomination for Danny Boyle’s 127 Hours.
This is the 44-year-old’s second stint at Hollywood’s second most prestigious annual movie prize after Boyle’s Mumbai-based underdog drama Slumdog Millionaire.
The Chennai-based composer is competing in the Original Score for a motion picture category with the likes of Alexandre Desplat (”The King’s Speech”); Danny Elfman (”Alice in Wonderland”); Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross (”The Social Network”) and Hans Zimmer (”Inception”), according to the event’s official website.
The soundtrack of 127 Hours includes the popular song If I Rise, a collaboration between Rahman and pop star Dido.
Starring Spider-Man star James Franco, the movie is a biopic about mountaineer Aron Ralston, who was trapped in a canyon for five days by a boulder that fell on his arm and he freed himself by amputating the limb.
