Oscar and Grammy winning composer A. R. Rahman will compose the music for Raanjhnaa, starring Why This Kolaveri Di singer Dhanush and actress Sonam Kapoor.
Looking at the kind of success his first ever song achieved, it will be interesting to see if the South actor gets to croon to one of Rahman's compositions. The film is based in Varanasi, and is being directed by Aanand L Rai of Tanu Weds Manu fame. Rai was quoted saying, "Rahman will compose the music of the film. I am very excited to work with him. He is brilliant with romantic tracks and this story needs to be told in a certain manner. And who can do it better than the maestro.
Rahman has been very selective about Hindi films in recent times. Of late, the only films he has composed for are Imtiaz Ali's Rockstar and the Prateik-Amy Jackson starrer Ekk Deewana Tha. Currently, he is working on Yash Chopra's directorial next, which stars Shah Rukh Khan, Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma. In addition, he has various international projects lined up as well.
