Mumbai, May 17 : Ace music director and Oscar winner A R Rahman will compose tunes for filmmaker Yash Chopra's next directorial venture which will star Shah Rukh Khan with two leading ladies.
Speaking about his latest project, Chopra said, “everyone knows that when I make a movie, Shahrukh will be involved with it. He is like family to Yash Raj Films and I have always regarded him as one of my own. There will be two leading ladies in my film. Once Adi gives me the final draft of the script, I will finalise the two girls who will be cast along with Shahrukh.”
For the first time, Chopra and Rahman have come together for the music of a project.
Speaking on his collaboration with Rahman, Chopra said, “I am starting work on the music of my untitled film with the very talented Rahman. Apart from the great honour that he has consistently brought to our country, he is also someone that has created some outstanding and memorable music, something which is very important and dear to me and my films. I am looking forward to creating some wonderful music combining Rahman's contemporary world music sensibilities and my old world sensibilities of lilting melodies.”
Rahman, while speaking about working with filmmaker for the first time said, “I am very excited to work with Yashji and I am humbled by his faith in me for his film. I have seen that Yashji always portrays music as the inevitable essence of love and divinity in his movies. I hope as a team we can bring tremendous joy to all.” PTI
