It all started with the two Oscars which A.R Rahman bagged for the movie Slumdog Millionaire (2008) directed by Danny Boyle. He hasn’t looked back since then. He composed for various Hollywood movies including 127 Hours, Couples Retreat and now Welcome to People, directed by Alex Kurtzman and co-produced by Steven Spielberg.
AR Rahman revealed the news just a couple of days after the grand music launch of Ekk Deewana Tha at Agra. He said that he just finished the sound track for the movie WTP. He said, it was great to work with Alex Kurtzman who is a high profile screen writer in Hollywood. He felt all the more happy about the movie due to the presence of Spielberg. He said, he had a wonderful time working in the film.
Spielberg had once earlier expressed his desire to work with the Indian maestro as he had heard some of his tracks were really interesting.
Welcome to People is a story about a man who is handed a task of delivering $1,50,000 to his sister. The movie stars Olivia Wilde, Elizabeth Banks, Michelle Pfeiffer, Chris Pine and Mark Duplass.
