Hollywood beckons Rahman

LOS ANGELES: After his double Oscar triumph, AR Rahman is now a hot property in Hollywood as well. The music maestro has been signed by Universal Studios to compose the music for its forthcoming film Couples Retreat.

Couples Retreat is a romantic comedy directed by Peter Billingsley and stars Vince Vaughn, Kristen Bell and Jason Bateman in lead roles. In keeping with the light hearted theme of the film, Rahman would be composing a soothing and light score. The film is expected to release towards the end of this year. Enjoying the best of both worlds, there certainly seems to be no looking back for AR Rahman.
