Music director AR Rahman last composed the score for a Malayalam film way back in 1992 for the Mohanlal starrer Yodha. After that, the musician has not worked in the industry.
Looks like this wait will come to an end after 25 years! The Oscar winner had revealed during the Mathrubhumi – AR Rahman Live concert press meet in Dubai that he will soon be composing tunes for a Malayalam film. However, the musician did not disclose any further details. The live concert will happen in Dubai on March 17, 2017.
There is a buzz that AR Rahman has been roped in to compose music for Mohanlal’s upcoming film Randamoozham but there is no official word on it yet. In 2011, director Hariharan had announced that he will be adapting the novel Randamoozham into a film and that it will have Mohanlal in the lead. But the project was shelved due to financial constraints. Now, Shreekumar Menon will be wielding the megaphone for the magnum opus. To be made on a huge budget, sources say that Randamoozham might turn out to be the highest budget movie to be ever made in the Malayalam film industry.
