Singer-composer Shankar Mahadevan is on cloud nine as Mujhse hogi shurvaat by I Paid a Bribe and the Shankar Mahadevan Academy has been nominated in the best activist anthem category of Honesty Oscars 2014.

A few days before the 86th Academy Awards, campaigning and advocacy organisation ONE and Accountability Lab started unveiling the nominations for Honesty Oscars 2014, an award that honours not Hollywood films, but the creative work of activists and organisations that fight global corruption. The awards will be handed over to those who get maximum number of votes and the winners will be announced on March 2, the night of the Oscars.

So far, three categories of Honesty Oscars have been unveiled — best visual effects, best activist in a leading role and the best activist anthem to honour original songs that have truly inspired audiences to learn about the fight against global corruption and join the movement, too.

“Our song has been nominated for the Honesty Oscar Awards! Please go to the link and vote ...,” Shankar tweeted on Thursday. The song is by the singer’s online music academy and — Bangalore-based non-profit organisation Janaagraha’s initiative to tackle corruption. “Mujhse hogi shurvaat” has been sung by Mahadevan, Sukriti Kakar, Prakriti Kakar and Chetan Naik. The song has been co-composed by Soumil and Siddharth. — IANS
