Rahman bags up the Filmfare Awards 2008

28 02 2008

It was Rahman’s night at the 53rd Annual Filmfare Award. The Mozart of Asia, nominated in three categories – Best Music, Best Background Score and Best Singer, walked away with two statues of the black lady (Best Music, Best Background Score) losing out the third one by a whisker.

It should be noted that the world renowned composer had just one release in 2007, director Mani Ratnam’s Guru which released at the very beginning of 2007. However, the film’s songs are still a rage with the masses, a proof of Rahman’s musical prowess and extravaganza.

As he received the award for Best Background Score, Rehman (who was presented the award by Bollywood’s famed director duo Abbas-Mustan) said, “The Filmfare Award is like an ornament for a lady; the more you have, it enhances the charm.”

Later on, he was back on stage once again, this time receiving the Best Music award for Guru from Bappi Lahiri and Poonam Dhillon. The award, his 21st, makes the Maestro the recipient with the most number of Filmfare awards. We, Rahmaniac.co.nr, wish the ‘Isai Puyal’ on his glorious triumph.
