Besides the films, concerts and private albums, there is something else that is keeping A. R. Rahman busy these days.
After the musical extravanganza offered in the soundtracks of Jodhaa Akbar, Jaane Tu... Ya Jaane Na and the soon to be released Yuvvraaj, Rahman will now compose the theme song for the twenty-twenty Indian cricket league.
This is for the first time that the music maestro has composed the theme song for any major sports tournament. The theme song doesn't have any lyrics but only chants accompanied by Rahman's foot-tapping composition.
So all you cricket fans out there, you've got one more reason to tune into this cricketing extravaganza when it kicks off on Dec. 3rd this year.
