Slumdog Millionaire has been nominated for two Academy Awards in the music category and one of them is for the song ‘Jai Ho‘, which was composed and sang by legendary Bollywood musician AR Rehman. The song Jai Ho incorporates the true Indian spirit embedded in a low pitched voice. See the music video and check out the lyrics of Jai Ho here.

AR Rehman





Millions of AR Rehman fans are cheering for him as the countdown for the 2009 Academy Awards closes. Rehman is a brilliant musician and many have the opinion that Jai Ho is not even close to his best works which include Dil Se Re and Vande Matram. Nonetheless, people will be happy to see him finally getting recognized at the international stage.

“We have been distributing food packets to the underprivileged every Sunday for over a year now. But this time, it will be special, because we know Rahman is going to come back with an Oscar,’’ a Chennai Rehman admirer says.

People are in for a treat this month as while their superstar is gobbling up all the international awards on offer this season, his latest music composition movie Delhi 6 got released just this Friday. So, basically it’s a Rehman fiesta going on here.

Rehman also performed Jai Ho yesterday on the Jay Leno show.

Lyrics of Jai Ho:

Jai Ho Jai Ho Jai Ho Jai Ho
Aaja Aaja Jind Shamiyane Ke Tale
Aaja Jariwale Nile Aasman Ke Tale
Jai Ho Jai Ho

Aaja Aaja Jind Shamiyane Ke Tale
Aaja Jariwale Nile Aasman Ke Tale
Jai Ho Jai Ho
Jai Ho Jai Ho

Ratti Ratti Sachi Maine Jaan Gavayi Hai
Nach Nach Koylo Pe Raat Bitayi Hai
Akhiyon Ki Neend Maine Phoonko Se Uda Di
Neele Tare Se Maine Ungli Jalayi Hai
Aaja Aaja Jind Shamiyane Ke Tale
Aaja Jariwale Nile Aasman Ke Tale
Jai Ho Jai Ho
