Oscar winner A.R Rahman, who has composed the music and background score for Eros International's RAANJHANAA directed by Aanand L Rai, got on board the film, having read the script loved the fact that it was rooted to Indianness.


Talking about the music of the film says the maestro, ''When Aanand narrated the script to me I was drawn to its Indianness. RAANJHANAA has an earthy Banaras feel to it and the music here plays a bigger role. It aims to tell a story.'' Adding that, ''It has classical and folk elements that are character driven. The film has a rustic and urbane side to it which is reflected in the music.''

Composed by Rahman with lyrics by Irshad Kamil, several songs from the film including the title track 'Raanjhanaa' and 'Tum Tak' have already gone on to catch listeners' attention, but the makers promise there's much more to come with a track titled ''Freedom'' also sung by Rabbi.

''Freedom song is a contemporary track about the character in Urbane Delhi. I've sung it with Rabbi Shergill.'' adds Rahman.

With music composed by A.R Rahman, Eros International's RAANJHANAA directed by Aanand L Rai, starring Dhanush, Sonam Kapoor and Abhay Deol is scheduled to release 21st June 2013.
