Ismail Darbar indicts ARR not worthy of Oscar!
ARR has never failed to make every Indian feel proud of his music. A couple of years back, his score for Danny Boyle’s film ‘Slumdog Millionaire’ won him the ‘Best Original Music Score’ and ‘Best Original Song’ at the Oscars, making us Indians only even more proud.
But this seems to have stirred another idea for noted music composer, Ismail Darbar.
Ismail Darbar who has contributed great songs to the Bollywood film industry, while speaking to a media firm alleged that A R Rahman bought the Oscar Award by bribing the jury! He expressed that the music of ‘Slumdog Millionaire’ is not worthy of prestigious awards and there is no Oscar material about it.
He added that, other films of Rahman’s were worthy of such awards but definitely not this, and that he is sure that the award has been bought by Rahman.
In response to this, ARR replied in his usual calm fashion that an Oscar cannot be bought since its 3000 people who judge it, and there’s not a way that one can even think of doing such a thing.
