One of the most anticipated upcoming projects is director Nag Ashwin's next with Prabhas. Touted to be a big-budget sci-fi thriller, this film features Deepika Padukone as the female lead. The latest sources revealed that the makers are planning to rope in musical maestro AR Rahman as the composer of this movie. However, it seems that Rahman has quoted a whopping remuneration of Rs. 4 crores for the movie.
According to the sources, the team has already approached Rahman with the offer. It seems that the composer quoted his price and the makers were quite baffled by it. Other music directors like Devi Sri Prasad and Thaman charge about Rs. 2.5 per film. Comparing to them, Rahman is charging reasonably considering his reputation. However, none of his recent works barring Dil Bechara got a good response from the audiences. That fact is now making the producers reconsider their options. If not Rahman, we hear that the makers will go with MM Keeravani to compose the music of this film.
Rahman recently made a shocking statement by saying that a gang in Bollywood made him lose many offers. He alleged that they were trying to defame him by spreading rumours inside the industry circles. Rahman's next release will be 99 songs. He is also composing the music for films like Ponniyin Selvan, Cobra, Aadujeevitham, Atrangi Re and Ayaalan. All these films will release next year.
