Batting ace Sachin Tendulkar is extremely elated by India's showing at the Oscars.
"It is a brilliant achievement. For the entire nation, it is a very proud moment," Tendulkar said this morning.
The master blaster, who had had a word with A R Rahman a couple of days ago, was confident that the musical genius will walk away with the honours.
"Rahman's contribution to music has been immense and this award is only a mere reflection of what he has been able to contribute to music and to India.
"I had spoken to him not only about this, but about other albums as well. He has always been able to produce something special in every album," Tendulkar said.
Rahman won two Oscars - for the best original score and the best song.
Sachin the Rahman of Cricket... Rahman the sachin of music...
