AR Rahman pays money for Oscar

Music wizard A.R. Rahman is said to have been hugely upset by the allegations from certain quarters that he had ‘paid heavily’ to bag the twin Oscar awards he won in the year 2008 for his work in Danny Boyle’s ‘Slumdog Millionnaire’. The allegations have been leveled by Ismail Durbar, one of Bollywood’s popular music directors.

Ismail’s music in director Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Salman Khan-Aishwarya starrer ‘Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam’, which was scored almost a decade back, is still loved by the music lovers for its melodious nature. Speaking to newsmen in Nagpur recently, Durbar has said that he was highly ‘skeptical’ of the way Rahman won the twin-Oscars in 2008 and expressed his apprehension that ‘money could have changed hands’ for giving the awards to Rahman.

“If Rahman deserves an Oscar for music, it should have been given to him either for his work in ‘Roja’ or for ‘Bombay’ and certainly not for ‘Slumdog Millionnaire’. I smell something ‘fishy’ in the whole thing,” said Durbar and denied when he was asked by the scribes as to whether he had any ‘concrete proof’ to back his allegations.

Durbar’s allegations have met with wide-spread protest from inside and outside Bollywood and from Rahman’s fans. Lalith Pandit, a popular composer, has said that “Rahman has brought glory to the country through his music. No such false allegations should be leveled against him by anyone.”

Reacting to the allegations, Rahman vehemently denied that ‘money had changed hands’ for the Oscars and said that “The whole world is watching the Oscar awards selection committee live on TV; I wonder how can anyone hope to influence as many as 3,000 persons to get those awards!”

  3. this is truly horrendous!!!!!.Its not an interschool competition to bribe the panel.Arr deserves this award.People who are jealous of him cant accept the truth.As long as music lives arr will be there.His music has the divine power to connect us with the almighty.

  4. ppl relax..its obvious this guy is sooo jealous of ARR’s acomplishment and so he is just pulling a fast one.. Ismail go and do  yourself some  good music , don’t disturb ARR.. your jealously is soo very obvious to everyone.. 😛

  6. 1st of all, oscars are only given to hollywood movies!! foreign films only are nominated in selected category and tat too for the best film only.. i dun think there is any oscar given for best music composition in a foreign film.. if tats the case then how the hell would ar rahman win an oscar award for roja and bombay!! “slumdog millionare” is a hollywood movie bloody fool ismail!! this guy doesnt even have any basic knowledge!!      
           
    and this ismail ‘dubaakoor’ only scored gd music in “Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam” and “Devdas” and he got the cheek to talk abt a music composer who has won:        
    two Academy Awards, two Grammy Awards, a BAFTA Award, a Golden Globe, four National Film Awards, fourteen Filmfare Awards, eleven South Filmfare Awards???!!!

    FIRST OF ALL OSCAR IS NOT INTERNATIONAL AWARD.
    IT IS AN USA AWARD FOR HOLLYWOOD FILMS.
    THEN THIS CHINALIKKE BACHE  WHY HE WENT TO GET OSCAR ?
    TO GET NAME?
    YOU CANNOT BECOME GETTING AWARDS.
    RASCAL HE SHOULD ASK PUBLIC APOLOGY TO PEOPLE FOR GOING BACK WHITES TO GET AWARD.


    HE WILL SELL ANYTHING FOR AWARD.
    HE IS AN AWARD PSYCHO.
    BUT ONLY THING HE FOLLOWS IS SILENCE.
    NATURALLY GOOD PEOPLE WILL FOLLOW SILENCE BUT SOMEHOW THIS CRIMINAL FOLLOWS SILENCE. IT IS HIS TECHNIQUE.

  20. Hey, first of all u plz shut ur stupidityzzz. What u knw abt Oscar? It s not given only to American Stars, to recognize excellence of professionals in the international film industry, including directors, actors, and writers. The formal ceremony at which the awards are presented is one of the most prominent award ceremonies in the world, and is televised live in more than 200 countries annually. It is also the oldest award ceremony in the media. Mr.AR RAHMAN did his gr8  job in Slumdog Millionaire is a 2008 British romantic drama film directed by Danny Boyle

    U R NOT ONLY INSULTING Mr AR RAHMAN, BUT ALSO THE OSCAR AWARD….(IM SOO ASHAMED OF U)

    And y shud he ask apology. What do u mean WHITES?
    First v shud b united. Stop separating people calling them BLACKZ N WHITES…………

    AND THE ABOVE NEWS GIVEN ABT ISMAIL, IS JUST FOR HIS POPUPLARITY ASPECT HE IS SPREADING A SHITTY RUMORS

  21. This clearly shows only INDIAN are aginst INDIAN all the while….they are the idiots on the earth whom look down on thier own people…..

  22. Like this one by one all the hidden truth will come out.

    REHMAN SEE YOUR BAD FACE IS KNOWN OUT.
    Rehman shame on you
    Rehman shame on you
    Rehman shame on you!

  23. Yes Yes the truth is coming out. He is a pukka businee fraud.
    Why he runs here and there to get award ?

    Very bad very bad example ?

    It is not necessary for an Indian to get Oscar, and get business good here. Rehman should be chased out he is not faithful to Tamil, nor Hindi nor English he goes everywhere seeking cheap popularity.

  24. Stupid guys…they think Oscar is a cheap thing can be bought with money…They are Americans not Indians …mind it…Ismail is a jelous bastard…f**k him

  25. With popularity & fame comes  comments from a bunch of loosers!! Keep up your good job and pay no attention to the “noice” around !!
