Yash Chopra signs AR Rahman to compose music for his forthcoming film starring Shah Rukh Khan
Yash Chopra, who will be directing a film after seven long years, has gone ahead and done something that nobody could think of.
The filmmaker has signed AR Rahman for his next directorial venture. This will be the first time the Oscar winning composer would be lending tunes to a Yash Chopra film in his career spanning 20 long years.
Our source revealed, “Yash Chopra has been a part of the industry for the last 50 years and YRF Films have ruled Bollywood over the last 40 years. However, this will be the first time the two iconic talents will come together.
While details of Yashji’s film are still being kept under wraps, it is clear that it will be Shah Rukh Khan who’ll indeed be a part of the project.”
Chopra himself was all praises for the composer. “I am starting work on the music of my film which is yet untitled with AR Rahman.
Apart from the great honour that he has consistently brought to our country, he is alsi someone who has created some outstanding and memorable music.
And music, as you know is not only very dear to me but also an integral part of my films. I am looking forward to creating some wonderful music combining Rahman’s contemporary world music sensibilities and my old world tastes in lilting melodies,” said Chopra.
On the other hand, Rahman, while speaking about working with Chopra for the first time said, “I’m very excited about working with Yash Chopra. I am humbled by his faith in me.
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.”
Chopra also cleared certain speculations about the cast of the film, saying, “Everyone knows that when I make a movie, Shah Rukh will be involved in it. He is like family to YRF and I have always regarded him as one of my own.
There will be two leading ladies in my film. Once Adi (Aditya Chopra) gives me the final draft of the script, I will finalise the two girls opposite SRK.”
