A R Rahman After winning two Oscars at this year's Academy Awards, music composer A R Rahman is planning to take up more projects in Hollywood.

However, that doesn't mean that the Mozart of Madras is saying goodbye to India. Rahman says he will now have to balance work in India with work in the US.

"50 per cent of the year I might be there (US), the rest over here," Rahman recently told a tabloid.

The talented composer, who on Saturday won two Filmfare Awards for his compositions in Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na and his background score in Jodhaa Akbar , says he would have to say no to some projects in India to be able to take out time to "stay put in the US".



Now that Rahman has become a known face in the West, he wants to spend some time in the US to be able to establish a base and make connections.

Meanwhile, back home in Chennai, Rahman was felicitated by Tamil Nadu Governor Surjit Singh Barnala for having made India proud with his double Oscar win.
