New Delhi, Dec 14 (Calcutta Tube) 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.
