AR Rahman is making a comeback in the Malayalam film industry after 25 years. The Oscar winner will be composing music for Prithviraj’s Malayalam film Aadujeevitham. Rahman, who is set to perform in Dubai to mark his journey of 25 years in the music industry spoke about his Malayalam project. He said, “I’m working with director Blessy for Aadujeevitham. It is a beautiful story.”
The last Malayalam film that Rahman worked on was Yoddha starring Mohanlal in 1992. That was the year that he debuted in Tamil and Hindi films as well, with Mani Ratnam’s Roja. While he went on to compose more songs in Tamil and Hindi, he hasn’t done anything in Malayalam.
Rahman is also working on other projects including a science fiction that stars Sivakarthikeyan. He is also working on his musical 99 songs. The composer did walk out of the Telugu biopic Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy starring Chiranjeevi citing time constraints. Shankar’s 2.0, an untitled Mani Ratnam film, Rajiv Menon’s Sarvam Thaala Mayam, AR Murugadoss’s upcoming project starring Vijay, Sundar C’s period film Sangamithra are the upcoming Tamil films which will have music by Rahman.
He is also composing music for Dhanush’s Hollywood film, The Fakir of Venice and worked on Majid Majidi’s Beyond the Clouds.
