After composing award winning songs, A R Rahman has got another project up his sleeves. According to reports, Rahman has decided to head in another direction and has written a script about a singer.
The film reportedly has 99 songs, and tells a story of art and self-discovery. The film will release in Hindi, but will also have a Tamil release, and will go on floors by the end of 2015.
Music plays an integral part of the film, and the tracks have all been composed by A R Rahman himself. The film is said to be based on the life of an aspiring singer and his struggle to become a successful composer, and no it’s not a biopic.
