AR Rahman contender for Oscar Award again

Double Oscar winning Indian composer AR Rahman is once again in the race for an Academy Award. Among the 114 scores in contention for a nomination in the Original Score category for the 47th Oscars, Rahman stands a chance with three mentions. His work for Million Dollar Arm, The Hundred-Foot Journey, and Indian film Kochadailyaan are part of the list released by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. The final nominations shortlist for the awards will be announced in January 2015, and the presentation ceremony will be held in February 2015. Rahman made India proud with his twin win at the Academy Awards for Danny Boyles' Slumdog Millionaire in 2009. In 2011 he received two nominations for his original score in Boyle's 127 Hours, as well as original song If I Rise, for the same movie.
