After teaming up for films, music composer AR Rahman and Hollywood filmmaker Danny Boyle will work together again. This time, to compose a part of the score for the opening ceremony of London Olympics 2012 (July 27-August 12). Boyle, who is directing the ceremony, has worked with Rahman in films such as Slumdog Millionaire and 127 Hours
“I am doing a track for him (Boyle) for the Olympics. It’s one of the songs for the opening ceremony. It’s a secret,” Rahman was quoted as saying.
Apart from Rahman, Maestro Ilayaraja’s composition too will be a part of the inaugural programme. His Tamil song, Naanthaan Ungappanda, from Kamal Hassan’s 1980 film Ram Lakshman, has made it to the playlist.
