More international honours for A R Rahman. He won two Grammy awards in Los Angeles for his music from Oscar-winning film "Slumdog Millionaire".
Rahman won the first Grammy of the pre-show at the Staples Center in the best compilation soundtrack for a motion picture category and then came "Jai Ho", which won the best motion picture song.
"This is insane, god is great again," Rahman said as he accepted his second award.
Rahman's rivals in the soundtrack category included Steve Jordan for "Cadillac Records," Quentin Tarantino for "Inglourious Basterds", and the producers of "Twilight" and "True Blood."
In the best song category Rahman's beaten rivals included Bruce Springsteen for his song "The Wrestler", from the Oscar-nominated movie of the same name.
The Grammy success comes after Rahman earned two Oscars for his music in "Slumdog Millionaire" at last year's Academy Awards.
The talented music maestro picked up the best original score statuette before scooping the best song Oscar.
