Bollywood music director Ismail Darbar will be reportedly composing music for Shivaraj Kumar's historical movie Kabir. An offer from the makers of the movie have been made and he has accepted the same.
Ismail Darbar had won the National Award for his debut Hindi movie Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam. His work in Shahrukh Khan starrer Devdas had taken him to new heights. Both movies were directed by acclaimed filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali. But later they parted ways and the music director's career saw a downhill.
As the genre perfectly suits Ismail Darbar, the makers of Kabir approached him. The upcoming Kannada flick is made on the life and times of 15th century saint Kabir. Shivaraj Kumar will be seen in the title role. The film is directed by Narendra Babu of Kabbadi fame and the movie will have Kabir's famous Dohas.
It has to be noted that late Dr Rajkumar had done a movie on Kabir titled Mahatma Kabir. Shivanna, who generally doesn't accept movies which were earlier done by his father, agreed to this because he believes in Kabir's philosophies. The film is expected to go on the floors by the end of the year. Other details about the cast and crew are awaited.
