Oscar-winning composer A. R. Rahman has been roped in to compose the music for the Bruce Lee biopic, which is being directed by Academy Award nominated filmmaker Shekhar Kapur.
"A. R. Rahman is doing the music for the film. I’m excited about the music that Rahman will compose for the project," said Kapur. The filmmaker’s daughter, Kaveri, will also be doing a single with Rahman. "Kaveri and I are going to be coming down to Chennai. She will be recording a single, not a film song," added Kapur.
A teenager, Kaveri is Kapur’s daughter with actress Suchitra Krishnamoorthi. Her previous songs include "Did You Know", "Half a Heart" and "Again".
