For A.R. Rahman its been a long gap of about thirty four years and he gave all the credit to Ashutosh Gowariker fot getting him to compose for Everest.
“I started with Wonder Balloon. Since then, television has changed a lot. It has become so big. Ashutosh has given me so many good songs in his movies. It is a great start for me with Ashutosh and Star Plus. Ashutosh came to me with a concept, which was so intriguing and beautiful. He has briefed me about the twelve characters. In fact, we finished the theme song three days back. We have tried to make it very orchestral.” stated a very elated A.R. Rahman.
A.R. Rahman even stated that he is honoured to be with Ashutosh Gowariker and added that it was a privilege to work on the Star Plus show.
“I have worked with Ashutosh earlier and it was a great experience. He has given me a brief for the show and I have already composed the title track for Everest. I am also planning to use tracks created by some students from my music college for this show.” stated A.R. Rahman.
A.R. Rahman feels Indian television has changed a lot in terms of production and it was a good experience for him to work in it. He is really looking forward to the show being aired and the reactions of the audiences.
Everest is expected to go on air from November 2014 on Star Plus and is based on the story of a young girl who wishes to reach the highest Peak in the world, Mount Everest.
