Rahman’s ‘return’ to Telugu

Rahman boasts of a massive discography, scoring iconic numbers in Tamil, Hindi, Telugu, Malayalam, English, Persian and Mandarin. While a lot of the composer’s songs in Tamil have also been dubbed into Telugu or he was roped in for a remake, it’s rare for him to compose for a Telugu project that will be dubbed in other Indian languages.

He only scored the background for Nippu Ravva in the ‘90s before composing for Super Police, Gangmaster, Naani, Ye Maaya Chesave, Komaram Puli and Sahasam Swasaga Sagipo in the language. So in a way, the yet-to-be-titled project marks his ‘return’ to Telugu cinema after years.

Upcoming work

Ram is currently shooting for Shankar’s maiden Telugu project, Game Changer. The film also stars Kiara Advani in the lead role and features an ensemble cast in key roles. Shooting for the film is in progress and the film is expected to hit screens sometime this year. After wrapping up shooting for that, he will commence shooting for Buchi’s film.

Rahman has numerous films lined up in Tamil, Malayalam, Hindi and Arabic. He is also composing for Dhanush’s upcoming film, Imtiaz Ali’s Chamkila and Mani Ratnam’s Thug Life.
