For the Hindi film industry, two names define quality and integrity – AR Rahman and Gulzar. Oscar winner AR Rahman has created melodic music that has made international headlines, and Padma Bhushan and Oscar winner Gulzar have written unforgettable lyrics over the decades that have shaped India. Now Sandeep Singh has brought these two legends together under his Legend Global Studio banner for his upcoming prestigious project – the biopic about business tycoon Subrata Roy.
AR Rahman shared his views on the collaboration, “Gulzar Saab’s soulful lyrics are extremely inspiring to a musician and I hope that I can do justice to the lyrics and the story. I’m looking forward to this collaboration. “
Gulzar Saab adds: “It will be wonderful to work with Rahman again. Subrata Roy’s life is enigmatic and inspiring. Rahman is a wonderful artist and musician and I’m looking forward to this collaboration. “
Filmmaker Sandeep Singh announced, “It gives me a lot of joy to bring these text and music legends together for a project that is very close to my heart. I was an ardent admirer of the work of AR Rahman ji and Gulzar Saab. Their contribution to cinema cannot be measured and I am humble that they are part of my project. The life of Subrata Roy Sir is an incredible story of courage, determination and success and it takes the support of these two geniuses to make this dream come true on 70mm. I am humble and overwhelmed ”.
The news from the Subrata Roy Biopic came only last month when it became known that Sandeep Singh had acquired the rights to the film. The film is reported to span multiple continents, and the tycoon’s journey traversed over the decades. The title and line-up of the biopic are expected to be announced shortly.
