coming I was excited and terrified.
The last I felt like that was doing
my marriage… uummm…
there is this dialogue from a Hindi
film called “mere pass ma
hai…” which means I
have nothing but I have my mother…
so mother’s here… her
blessings are there with me. I am
grateful for her to have come all
the way. I want to thank the academy
for being so kind, all the jury
members. I want to thank the IDBR,
all the crew of the Slumdog, Mr.
Gulzar, Ragheb Alama, Palsy and
my musicians in Chennai and Mumbai.
