Chennai's greatest gift to Indian film music, A.R. Rahman, is likely to compose a part of the track for an unusual international film project being planned to coincide with the 250th birth anniversary of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.
The brainchild of Salzburg-based Austrian music composer and violinmaker Winrich Sturies, the film has been in the works for over six months.
"It will roll very soon," says Sturies. "The release of the film is planned for mid 2006."
Mozart was born in Salzburg in January 1756.
The Indian partner in the film venture, Sanjay Kaushik of the Paramount group of companies, says the details are all in place.
"The script is ready, talks are on with Rahman and the process of casting will be completed before we set a firm date for the shoot to begin."
Wowwwwwwwww.... So excited to read this news. However, the news item mentions that Rahman is "likely" to compose for this international film which means that it is not yet confirmed. Hope the confirmation comes soon!!!
