A 90-minute documentary showcasing the journey of music maestro AR Rahman called ‘Jai Ho’ is all set to premiere on October 26th on Discovery channel. The Oscar-winning composer said initially, he did not find it “necessary” to have a documentary based on him, but later director Umesh Aggarwal convinced him. Aggarwal said that it’s the first “definite feature” on Rahman. “I am confident that this film will convey his astonishing success and global phenomenon,” he said. Shot across the world, the film includes interviews of Aamir Khan, Danny Boyle, Mani Ratnam, Gulzar, Ashutosh Gowarikar, Shekhar Kapoor, Subhash Ghai and composer Andrew Lloyd Webber among others.
The film traces Rahman’s journey from achieving superstar status in India with numerous hits in a very short time to working with big names in the west. Some of his personal experiences are also going to be showcased in the film. ‘Jai Ho’ has been created for the Public Service Broadcasting Trust.
