German music composer Hans Zimmer of The Dark Knight
and Inception fame was honoured with a Life time
achievement award at the recently concluded Zurich International
film festival. In a chat with an Indian reporter, Hans Zimmer has
spoken a lot about A.R. Rahman.
Hans Zimmer has said he had once invited the two time oscar
winning music composer A.R. Rahman to play in his orchestra for
reinventing the music of Oscars. He has also said that he shares a
special bonding with the Indian music composer.
Hans Zimmer has also expressed keen interest in forming an
alliance with Rahman and the duo has already discussed on the same.
He also recalled an instance when A.R. Rahman visited Los Angeles
for the first time and had to occupy a part of Hans Zimmer's studio
which he thinks is A.R. Rahman's haven. Hans Zimmer has jokingly
said that if he visits India he will station his studio in A.R.
Rahman's studio for a while.
He has finally said, "AR Rahman is a wonderful man and
extra-ordinary talent, he is everything you hope a composer would
be" before signing off.
