Oscar-winning musician AR Rahman and legendary lyricist-poet Gulzar are reuniting for an interesting project. They will be working together for a biopic on business tycoon Subrata Roy. The rights for the film were acquired last month by filmmaker Sandeep Singh, who will be producing the biographical venture. Both Rahman and Gulzar have expressed their happiness over the collaboration. Rahman said that he looks forward to working with Gulzar Saab whose lyrics are “extremely inspiring” for any musician. “I hope I can do justice to the lyrics and the story,” the 54-year-old was quoted as saying by news agency PTI.
Gulzar reciprocated the gesture, saying Rahman is a “wonderful artist and musician”. Talking about the biopic, the 87-year-old veteran said that the life of Subrata Roy is very inspiring and enigmatic. Gulzar and Rahman have previously collaborated on memorable projects such as Dil Se, Guru, and Slumdog Millionaire, which went on to win multiple accolades including Academy awards.
