No Jai Ho at the Oscars
Patcy N | February 20, 2009 14:55 IST
A R Rahman will make India proud, as he walks the red carpet leading to the Kodak Theatre on February 22, where the 81st Annual Academy Awards will be held. Unfortunately, Sukhwinder Singh, who was to perform on Oscar night, will not be accompanying him.
Sukhwinder was supposed to sing Jai Ho, from Slumdog Millionaire [Images], at the ceremony. The Best Song nominations, according to Oscar custom, are usually performed at the awards night.
But due to some travelling difficulties, Sukhwinder will not attend the Oscars and instead, 'will cheer the Slumdog team from India,' according to his media manager Neelam Gupta.
The rest of the Slumdog team from India -- including the children -- will leave for the US tonight.
