Ace filmmaker Gautham Menon and Oscar Award winner AR Rahman are collaborating again. Yes, the duo are joining hands for the the Bollywood movie, Ek Deewana Tha, the Hindi version of Vinnaithaandi Varuvaayaa. However, it has not been confirmed whether the music director will score the music for his trilingual movie Neethaane En Ponvasantham (NEP).
Sources have said that AR Rahman has started working on Gautham Menon's Ek Deewana Tha. In fact, the composition works were supposed to start a while ago but got delayed due to the music director's other commitments. But the Oscar Award winner, who was also signed for NEP, reportedly denied the offer later due to his busy schedule.
Efforts are being made to woo the music director and he is likely to return for the forthcoming Tamil movie, add reports. NEP stars Jeeva in the Tamil version, Nani in Telugu, whereas Aditya Roy Kapoor in the Hindi version. Samantha is playing the female lead in all three instalments.
