Indian music maestro A.R. Rahman became the first Indian to bag two Oscars for his work in British filmmaker Danny Boyle's much acclaimed 'Slumdog Millionaire', which tells the rags-to-riches story of a Mumbai slum dweller.
He got his first Oscar on the night of the 81st Academy Awards here for best original score for the Mumbai-based drama.
The composer was overwhelmed and interspersed his speech with Hindi as well as Tamil on receiving the coveted trophy here Sunday.
