Is AR Rahman a Swiftie? On Wednesday, the music director sent a message on Twitter to Taylor Swift, inspiring collaboration demands from fans.

Taylor's 11th studio album The Tortured Poets Department sets massive new records as it released on April 19. Rahman wished her good luck for the same.

Fans were surprised to see his tweet for Taylor and in no time, a hashtag about their potential collaboration--ARRahmanxTaylorSwift--began trending on Twitter.

A collab that is indeed happening

The Taylor Swift collab may still be wishful thinking but Rahman is reportedly already set to collaborate with Hans Zimmer on Nitesh Tiwari's Ramayana. A source told Pinkvilla, “Hans Zimmer is gearing up to make his debut in the Indian film industry with Ramayana. Namit Malhotra and Nitesh Tiwari have always been vocal about their global vision for this Indian epic and they are leaving no stone unturned to make that a reality. Hans Zimmer is also fascinated by the vision for the story of Lord Ram and is all ready to compose the score of Ramayana."

In Ramayana, Ranbir Kapoor is going to play Lord Ram while Sai Pallavi is expected to play his wife Sita. No official confirmation has been made about the movie or cast and crew yet.
