Till date, A.R. Rahman had two Oscar Awards for the "Best Original Music Score" & "Best Original Song" for the movie "Slum Dog Millionaire" in the year 2009. With this he became the only Indian to have two oscar awards. Gulzar also had won along with Rahman for the "Best Original Song" award.

The good news is that this time A.R Rahman is nominated again for the Oscar 2011. This time again for the "Best Original Song" & "Best Original Music" for the song "If I Rise" from the movie "127 Hours". Lets hope this time he will get good news for India once again.

A. R. Rahman won two Oscar awards till today. Both of them are for the same movie Slumdog Millionaire (2008) which is nominated for ten Academy Awards (Oscars) and won eight of them (the highest of that year).

The two Oscar Awards won by A. R. Rahman are:
1) Academy Award for Best Original Score.
2) Academy Award for Best Original Song (Jai Ho).
The former was awarded to A. R. Rahman only but the latter was awarded to both A. R. Rahman and Gulzar.

Hope this answer helps.
