The music maestro and double Oscar winner, AR Rahman has decided to go into voluntary exile in 2011. He will not be composing for films in 2011 and will be spending the entire year with his family.
Rahman revealed his decision in an interview said, “I’am taking a break. I am finishing a Bollywood movie called Rock Star (Ranbir Kapoor starrer directed by Imtiaz Ali, releasing on May 27). once I am done with it, I will be free”.
Playback singer Chinmayi has tweeted: “Though not something to look forward to, Rahman Sir is not doing any music scores this year. Good for his family who’ll finally get time with him.”
Meanwhile AR Rahman Foundation Calendar which was launched last week has turned out to be a runaway success.
We wish A R Rahman, a very happy New Year and this prolonged period of rejuvenation to do a wealth of good to Rahman’s creativity. Hope he will be back with a bang in 2012.
