It was a rewarding experience: Rahman

As reported first by IndiaGlitz on January 16, double Oscar winner A R Rahman's sound track for the Hollywood film 'Couples Retreat' is in the race for Oscar Awards this year.

Announcing this to reporters at the launch of ‘Couples Retreat’ album organised by Sare Gama in Chennai on Monday, the music composer said, "the film presented a lot of creative challenges. It was a deeply rewarding experience to be a part of it".

A track from the album 'Nana' has found a place in the list of Oscar entries for the year 2010. "I really enjoyed working for the project as the producers and the director were very cooperative," he said.

To a question on the Congress party using his composition 'Jai Ho...' from the Oscar winning 'Slumdog Millionaire' during the Lok Sabha elections last year, Rahman said "It did not belong to them alone, but to everyone."

Happy about his recent music concert in Australia, Rahman however cautioned against 'blowing it big' the incidents of attacks on Indians there and said that the country was showing 'genuine' interest in dealing with the issue.

He said his compositions for upcoming films ‘Endhiran’, ‘Sultan The Warrior’ and ‘Raavan’ would be distinctly different from each other and that of ‘Vinnaithandi Varuvaya’, which was launched recently.
