In the recent times, there have been lots of buzzes rounding up on airs that AR Rahman will not be composing music for Indian 2. It is apparently mentioned that Shankar has approached Anirudh to compose music for this mammoth project. Although the makers of this movie are closemouthed refraining from making any comments, it has been almost confirmed through the closed sources.
At the same point of time, there are few statements made that Shankar and AR Rahman are going through some difference of opinions on the creative levels. But then this is not going to be the reason for A R Rahman not working on Indian 2. It has been happening over the past few years if we had noticed clearly. After composing back to back big projects for Shankar, AR Rahman would prefer taking a break. It happened with Anniyan followed by Nanban. In all likelihood, this happens to be the reasons for Indian 2 as well. The film featuring Kamal Haasan in lead role will start rolling from February 2018.
It is worth mentioning that working for 2.O was a real big phase for AR Rahman and henceforth, he will be completing this project and take rest.
