On the film front, AR Rahman is currently working on several projects. In Tamil, he will be composing music for upcoming films like Sivakarthikeyan starrer Ayalaan, Vikram’s long-awaited Cobra and Mani Ratnam’s magnum opus Ponniyin Selvan. He is making his Mollywood comeback after 30 years with Malayankunju. His last Malayalam project was the Sangeeth Sivan directorial, Yoddha, starring Mohanlal, which was released in 1992.
