AR Rahman to compose music for Shekhar Kapur's upcoming biopic on Bruce Lee
New Delhi: Oscar-winning composer AR Rahman has been roped in to compose the music for the Bruce Lee biopic, which is being directed by Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Shekhar Kapur.
"AR Rahman is also doing the music for Bruce Lee," Kapur, who is in Mumbai briefly, told IANS over phone.
Kapur is pre-occupied with the shoot of Little Dragon, an authorised biopic of the martial arts legend and actor Bruce Lee.
The story is a contemporary dramatisation of the 1950's Hong Kong social and political forces that shaped Bruce Lee into the most famous martial-arts star and a significant modern-day philosopher.
Kapur said he is excited about the music that Rahman will compose for the project.
Meanwhile, the filmmaker's young and talented daughter Kaveri too is ready to do a single with Rahman.
"Kaveri and I are going to go to Chennai. She is doing a song with AR Rahman," Kapur said, adding that she will be recording a single and not any song for a film with the Mozart of Madras.
A teenager, Kaveri is Kapur's daughter with actress Suchitra Krishnamoorthi. She has already sung 'Did you know', 'Half a heart' and her latest track is called Again.
