Veteran filmmaker Yash Chopra is going to work with A R Rahman for the first time. He has roped in the Oscar winning music director to compose tunes for his upcoming directorial film. Yash Raj Films has signed Shahrukh Khan for the lead role, but the look out for the two female leads is still on.
“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," Yash Chopra told PTI.
Chopra is in all praise for the Oscar winning composer. “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," he said.
Rahman also expressed his excitement over working with Yash Chopra. “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," he said.
