Music composer AR Rahman has clarified in his latest media interaction that he won’t be scoring music for actor Ajith Kumar’s next Tamil film, contrary to reports.

There were rumours that Boney Kapoor had signed Rahman for his next Tamil project, tentatively AK 60, with Ajith Kumar.

However, in a recent interview to The Hindu, the composer revealed that he couldn't take up the project due to his prior commitments.

Rahman is currently busy with Vijay’s Bigil (2019) and a project each with Vikram and Kamal Haasan.  

Earlier in July, he revealed via a tweet that he’s collaborating with Kamal Haasan on his next magnum opus, Thalaivan Irukkindran (2020), a project he had originally announced nearly three years ago.

In Bigil, Rahman has made Vijay sing a song titled 'Verithanam'. Talking about the song, he said Vijay brought a lot of difference to the track with his voice.

“He (Vijay) has sung it well. His voice made a lot of difference to the song. I can’t reveal anything else about the music of Bigil, as we are still working on it — suspense,” Rahman said in his interview to The Hindu.

Bigil, which features Vijay in the role of a football coach, has been directed by Atlee. It gears up for release this Diwali.

Rahman is also looking forward to commence work on Vikram’s next yet-untitled project with director R Ajay Gnanamuthu.
