A R Rahman , who has previously composed tunes for Mani Ratnam’s shelved project ‘Lajjo’, is using those very tunes for ‘Raavana’ now.
What went wrong with ‘Lajjo’ is not clear, but the movie had a stunning cast of Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor paired opposite each other for the first time. However, the project was abandoned.
There was one song in ‘Lajjo’ which Rahman wanted Kareena and Aamir to sing. But since the movie got scrapped, Rahman is now using that song for ‘Raavana’ and will get Ash and Abhi to sing.
That Aishwarya is learning Carnatic music for this film is an old story now, as she plays a singer in this flick. And, on the other hand, hubby dear Abhishek too has an experience of singing while he did some rapping for Bluffmaster title track. So the idea of making both of them sing can be the USP for the film.
‘Raavana’ is a big film by Mani Ratnam and he is repeating his favourite actors after the successful Guru . The shooting of the film is in progress. The husband-wife duo has just finished their Kochi leg of shooting and the crew has now moved to Ooty.
The movie is being made both in Tamil and Hindi language. In the Tamil version Vikram is paired opposite Aishwarya.
