At last, after much delay, Oscar-Grammy winning composer A R Rahman’s production venture 99 Songs is done and the film is getting ready for release.

Rahman wrote on social media, “I am very excited to announce the release of my very first film as producer and writer,’99 Songs’, a young, passionate love story, with music at its soul.

99 Songs will be released in cinemas in three languages Hindi, Tamil and Telugu on June 21, 2019. I thank you all for the love, support and encouragement you have showered on me.”

The film is directed by Vishwesh Krishnamoorthy, who co-wrote the story with Rahman. Ehan Bhat and Edilsy Vargas are the lead pair in the movie, which is said to be a sensual story about art and self-discovery of a struggling singer who wants to be a successful music composer.

Recently, Rahman had created India’s Marvel anthem for the release of Avengers: Endgame. It will come out in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu.

A press release said Marvel India has teamed up with the Oscar-Grammy awards winning composer for the track, which will be released on April 1.

Said Rahman, “Being surrounded by Marvel fans in my own family, there was too much pressure to come with something really satisfying and apt for ‘Avengers: Endgame’. I hope Marvel aficionados and music lovers enjoy the track.”

Bikram Duggal, Head – Studios, Marvel India, said, “Avengers: Endgame is not just a movie, it’s an emotional journey for fans everywhere in India. An original composition by Oscar winner A R Rahman was the perfect way to celebrate the love for Marvel among fans in the country. This is our small way of thanking the fans here for their extraordinary support.”
