AR Rahman is in Los Angeles for Oscars 2019! The 52-year-old music maestro, who was part of the hand-picked guest-list for the 91st Academy Awards, shared updates from Los Angeles on Sunday evening (which is Monday morning in India). He followed up his initial post with a photo of himself, suited in black, from the red carpet. Mr Rahman's first post was simple and to the point, in which there's just a glimpse of the Oscar invite with the details. The photo appears to be taken during AR Rahman's way to the Dolby Theatre, where Oscars 2019 is being held. AR Rahman made history in 2009 with two Oscar wins, courtesy Danny Boyle-directed Slumdog Millionaire. He won the Best Original Song Oscar (shared with Gulzar) for Jai Ho and another Oscar statuette for Best Original Score. AR Rahman's Oscar wins in 2009 made him the first Indian to win two Academy Awards in a single night.
Here's how the music maestro filled up his Instagram with snippets from inside Oscars 2019 at Los Angeles' Dolby Theatres. AR Rahman at the Oscars! Check out his Instagram posts.

Just a day ahead of Oscars night, AR Rahman had posted this from The Academy:
Meanwhile, actress Freida Pinto, who played the female lead in Slumdog Millionaire, shared few snippets from the film's Oscar memories all the way back from 2009. "In spirit of The Academy Awards today, here are some of my favourite memories from behind the scenes in 2009 when Slumdog Millionaire made Oscar history," she wrote.
