AR Rahaman wins Golden Globe award for Jai Ho Song

Music maestro A R Rahman created history on Sunday night as he became the first Indian to win the prestigious Golden Globe awards for best original music score for Danny Boyle’s Slumdog Millionaire.

The film, with strong Indian connections, emerged as a hot favourite at the Globe, which sets the countdown for next month's Academy awards.

Rahman's song 'Jai Ho,' penned by lyricist Gulzar, was nominated for Best Original Music Score.

'Slumdog' is based on a novel by Indian diplomat Vikash Swarup and stars Bollywood actors Anil Kapoor and Irrfan Khan in lead among others.

Boyle's feel-good film depicts the moving story of a slumdweller Jamaal, who goes on to win USD 20 million on Indian reality show 'Who Wants to Be A Millionaire?' in a bid to win his love back.
