Constantly shuffling between LA, Mumbai and Chennai Oscar winner A.R Rahman who is at the moment living out of his suitcase is ensuring that the music of Eros International's RAANJHANAA gets the time and attention it deserves even if that means composing the music and background score while in LA.
Confirms the RAANJHANAA director Aanand Rai, ''It's very encouraging and inspiring to see Rahman's enthusiasm about the music. We're done with the songs and now he's working with on the background score from LA. We're on the phone together constantly getting the right lines and notes into place for the background music.''
All praise for the music maestro says the director, ''For Rahman RAANJHANAA is like his first score. After all these years he hasn't lost his enthusiasm and passion for his music. He is in a different continent. But he is constantly connecting with me on the music. The background music is shaping up even when we are not together in the same city. Working long-distance on the music RAANJHANAA has proved very rewarding to my project.''
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.
