New Delhi: Oscar winning music composer A.R. Rahman, who has got a Golden Globe nomination for his work in Danny Boyle`s `127 Hours`, is upbeat about the film`s release in Britain.

"I`m very excited about `127 Hours` releasing in the UK...and what makes it even more special is that we scored the music here..in London (sic)," Rahman posted on his Facebook page Wednesday.

The soundtrack of `27 Hours` includes the popular song "If I Rise", a collaboration between Rahman and pop star Dido. In fact, Rahman was lauded for his work by American mountain climber Aron Ralston, on whose life the film is based.

The Chennai-based composer is competing in the Original Score for a Motion Picture category at the Golden Globes with the likes of Alexandre Desplat (`The King`s Speech`), Danny Elfman (`Alice In Wonderland`), Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross (`The Social Network`) and Hans Zimmer (`Inception`).

The ceremony will take place Jan 16.
