Is AR Rahman planning to direct a virtual reality film in Hollywood?


AR Rahman, after weaving magic with his tunes, has now ventured into filmmaking. And he’s definitely not interested in the regular format. The music maestro would rather concentrate on virtual reality format and is currently busy with his debut directorial, Le Musk. And that’s not it. Rahman, who has composed tracks such as Humma Humma, Maa Tujhe Salaam, and Khwaja Mere Khwaja, has already decided on his next film in the same format and reveals that it will explore various Indian classical dance forms.

Ask if there are Hollywood offers already pouring in, Rahman says, “Yes, there is an offer from Hollywood to make [direct] a virtual reality film, but I will finish my film on Indian classical dance first, and then think about it.”

Excited about the whole idea and the format he is experimenting with, National award winning composer adds, “This one will be even more exciting than Le Musk. It’s based on five different Indian classical dance forms and music will continue to be the foundation of the story.” The film is expected to go on floors next year.
