A.R.Rahman completes composing 9 songs for nephew's film
A.R. Rahman, who is busy with Tamil film projects such as Rajinikanth's "2.o" and Mani Ratnam's "Kaatru Veliyidai", has completed composing nine songs for an upcoming yet-untitled project featuring his nephew G.V. Prakash Kumar. "Since it's a music-based film, Rahman was required to compose all the songs even before the shooting commenced. He has also completed a few portions of the background score. The project is slated to go on the floors later this year," a source in the know told. To be helmed by cinematographer-filmmaker Rajiv Menon, the film will star Prakash in the role of a drummer. "Most of the songs will be situational and will be part of the narrative. Hence, the film features nine songs. Prakash, who is a composer himself, is gearing up to play a drummer," he said.
