He got the Oscars for Best Song and Best Score. For work which is good but certainly not the best he's ever done. I’m so very happy for the man. Feels like the personal vindication of a starry-eyed young girl who could pick a Rehman tune out of hundreds and be right every time. At a time when Rehman was famous only down south and sneered at or generally ignored by the rest of the country. It feels so bloody great for the man to finally be acknowledged as one of the best musicians of our times. I always thought he was, and now the world acknowledges it with kind. He’s humble and unassuming with it, and so very gracious. Well done, you deserve it. They just had to give it you.
BTW, all you Hinduvta eejits. The man is Muslim. Feel free to stay out of the celebrations.
