Rock legend Sting has teamed up with sitarist Anoushka Shankar to create a song inspired by the film Bhopal: A Prayer For Rain, about the 1984 Bhopal gas tragedy.

“Sting was very moved by the film and offered to compose a song after it was ready. The song is now being added to the film,” said a source.

When contacted, the film’s director Ravi Kumar said: “Yes, Sting and Anoushka Shankar are doing a song for my film.”

Bhopal: A Prayer For Rain stars Martin Sheen, who is expected to be in India for the film’s release in December.
