AR Rahman completes writing his first movie script; a popular director to helm the project

The music maestro’s dream finally comes true as he finds time to pen his first script, and has even got a producer excited about the venture

Putting an end to the industry buzz that he would soon wield the megaphone for a movie, AR Rahman has said that he will not direct a film, but has finished writing a script.

“I have completed the story and the screenplay portions. It will be totally different from other movies. And a popular director will helm the project,” he said.

Stating that it was his long-time dream to pen a script, Rahman added that a producer is also ready to fund the project. “An official announcement will be made soon,” said the maestro.

The Oscar-Grammy winner is currently working on a number of Tamil projects including Rajinikanth’s Kochadaiyaan, Shankar’s I, Dhanush-starrer Mariyaan and Gautham Vasudev Menon’s Dhruva Natchathiram.
