Oscar-winning music composer, AR Rahman is all set to party with international star Jon Hamm in Los Angeles, USA. He will join the cast and crew of his upcoming Hollywood film, Million Dollar Arm, at Tabrez Noorani’s Indian-theme bash, which will also see other known faces in attendance, reveals an actor from the movie.

Pitobash, who also has a pivotal part in the film, is looking forward to going to the party. “I am quite excited because this is my first international project. The entire cast and crew will be there — Rahman sir, Jon Hamm, Lake Bell, Suraj Sharma and Madhur Mittal. It will be a fun party,” he says. Since the party has a desi theme, the stars might be seen in traditional Indian attire, just like what they have worn through the movie. “In the film, the men are seen wearing kurtas and pyjamas and Lake wears a ghagra-choli. But then, those were their costumes, so I am eager to see how my friends from the west party in Indian wear, over Hyderabadi food.”

The movie was shot in Lucknow and Agra, and Noorani will be giving his guests a feel of the exotic locations at the bash that he is hosting at his LA home on the eve of the film’s US release (May 16).

In the film, which is about a sports agent who scouts two Indian players and signs them up for Major League Baseball, Pitobash plays Hamm’s assistant. “Starting as an assistant, he becomes the translator for the two players,” says Pitobash.

The movie is set to hit theatres in India on May 9.
