Is AR Rahman losing interest in Tamil?

CHENNAI: Even after 19 years in the film industry, AR Rahman’s association with ace filmmakers Manirathnam and Shankar has never disappointed his fans. In fact, his recent album ‘Enthiran’ topped the global charts.

The year 2010 has been the most promising year for him with nearly a dozen albums of his hitting the stands, starting off with ‘Vinnaithandi Varuvaaya’. His new Hindi albums ‘Jhoota Hi Sahee’ and Imtiaz Ali’s ‘Rockstar’ will be released by next month. Then there is his Hollywood film, ‘127 Hours’ that brings back the Oscar-winning ‘Slumdog Millionaire’ team together.

There are however some who are upset that he wouldn’t be scoring music for Shankar’s remake of ‘3 Idiots’ due to his prior commitments of international projects and global tours.

Rumours now claim that Manirathnam will be signing Yuvan Shankar Raja up to score music for his next film tentatively titled ‘Pookadai’.
