AR Rahman and Sukhwinder Singh to Perform at Oscars, Invited to Open Awards Night

The new flavour of the West, A. R. Rahman is all set to give a live taste of his musical magic at the Oscars ceremony this year.

Rahman along with Sukhwinder has been invited to open the 81st annual Academy Awards night, on February 21 in Los Angeles, with the Oscar nominated song Jai Ho.

Meanwhile, Rahman is working on the song to modify it to have it in sync with the live orchestra for his stage performance.

And that's not all, ace lyricist Gulzar, who wrote the lyrics of Jai Ho is also expected to make an appearance at the gala award ceremony.

Jai Ho along with O Saaya has been nominated in the Best Original Song category this year. Rahman has also been nominated for giving the Best Original Score for Slumdog Millionaire.

An ecstatic Sukhwinder tells us, “I’m waiting for an official confirmation, till then I cannot comment on it.” Interestingly, the trio of Rahman, Gulzar and Sukhwinder had earlier worked together on ‘Chaiyya chaiyya’ from Dil Se, which was included in the Denzel Washington starrer Inside Man.
