AR Rahman has come on board to compose music for “Airlift” director Raja Krishna Menon’s next, “Pippa”. Rahman said he was drawn to the movie as the story has a human connect.
The movie is set in the backdrop of 1971 Indo-Pakistan war and will feature Ishaan Khattar, Mrunal Thakur, and Priyanshu Painyuli.
Rahman said that he is looking forward to working with Raja Krishna Menon, Ronnie Screwvala and Siddharth Roy Kapur.
“Pippa” is being produced by Ronnie Screwvala’s RSVP and Siddharth Roy Kapur’s Roy Kapur Films. Rahman’s previous collaborations with Ronnie Screwvala and Kapur were blockbuster musical hits like “Swades”, “Rang De Basanti”, “Jodhaa Akbar” and “Delhi-6”.
Siddharth Roy Kapur said Rahman’s music elevates the characters in the film and storytelling.
The movie is scheduled to release in theatres later this year.
