In a recent interview, AR Rahman was
quizzed as to where he keeps his two Oscar
awards and he had replied that his mother
had hidden it somewhere, probably in a
suitcase at home. Rahman said that people
visiting his home wanted to photograph
the Oscars and hence his mother decided
to put it away from the prying eyes.
To a question, if he did not want to
see it again, Rahman said that he would
definitely like to, but for now it can
rest where it is.
The music director is now composing music
for the Danny Boyle-directed 127 Hours,
which is based on mountaineer Aron Ralston’s
ordeal when his arm got caught underneath
a boulder and he had to stay there for
127 hours before help came.
