There have been many firsts in his successful climb to the top rung of the music world. Here's another: Chennai's very own A. R. Rahman has been signed up by Yash Raj Films for a Yash Chopra directed film, starring Shah Rukh Khan in the lead. SRK's two heroines are yet to be finalised.

Speaking about this from Mumbai, Yash Chopra was all praise for the talented music director. “I am starting work on the music of my as-yet-untitled film with Rahman. Apart from the great honour that he has consistently brought to our country, he is someone who has created outstanding and memorable music, something very important and dear to me and my films. I am looking forward to creating wonderful music, combining Rahman's contemporary world music sensibilities and my old-world sensibilities.”

About working with YRF for the first time, Rahman said, “I am very excited to work with Yashji and am humbled by his faith in me. I have seen that Yashji always portrays music as the inevitable essence of love and divinity in his movies. I hope as a team we can bring tremendous joy to all.”
