Mohanlal and AR Rahman shoot together for Aarattu
For a while now, there have been speculations about music maestro AR Rahman being a part of Mohanlal’s upcoming film ‘Aarattu’. While Rahul Raj handles the music department in the film, it was said that Rahman would be making a special appearance as himself. As it turns out, those were not just mere speculations. Last day, Mohanlal and AR Rahman shot together for a song sequence in Chennai. It is said that the composer has recreated his famous ‘Mukkala Muqabla’ song for the film and he will also be making a guest appearance.
This cameo marks Rahman’s first collaboration with Mohanlal in a Malayalam film after 29 long years. He had earlier composed for the superstar’s 1992-hit film ‘Yodha’. Interestingly, it is also the only Malayalam film that Rahman has worked in so far.
‘Aarattu’ is directed by B Unnikrishnan and scripted by Udhayakrishna. The makers have promised that the film will be a full-on mass entertainer that would appeal to all sections of the audience. Popular South Indian actress Shraddha Srinath plays the female lead in the film. The elaborate supporting cast also includes Siddique, Sai Kumar, Nedumudi Venu, Indrans Vijayaraghavan, Swasika, Rachana Narayanankutty and Sheela.
