After A.R. Rahman did the nation proud by bagging two Oscars for his Slumdog Millionaire score, it’s now the turn of ace music composer duo Salim-Sulaiman to bring some more laurels to the Indian music industry. In case you are wondering what we are talking about, then let us tell you that the talented duo Salim-Sulaiman have bagged a nomination at the Emmy Daytime Awards under the ‘Outstanding Original Song- Children’s and Animation’ category. Bollywood Hungama got in touch with Sulaiman Merchant who but obviously was all excited, ” Yes.
Although the feeling hasn’t yet sunk in, we are thrilled on bagging the prestigious Emmy nomination. The nomination is for a track called ‘We Like Being Small’ which we composed for a special episode of Nickelodeon’s T.V. show ‘The Wonder Pets’. Since the episode ‘Save The Bengal Tiger’ had an Indian flavour to it, we were approached to do the music and we are glad that we took it up. It can’t get more exciting for us now that we have bagged the prestigious Emmy nomination.”
While the composer duo are busy with their current lot of Bollywood assignments which includes the background score of Kites, and the music of Teen Patti and Luck, they surely would be gearing up to attend the grand ceremony scheduled to take place on August 30th. We wish Salim- Sulaiman all the best and hope that they indeed come home with the coveted statue and give us all yet another reason to celebrate.
