Oscar-winning composer AR Rahman has been roped in to compose music for a Bruce Lee biopic, being directed by Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Shekhar Kapur.

“AR Rahman is also doing the music for Bruce Lee,” said the director.

The authorised biopic of the martial arts legend and actor will be called Little Dragon.

The story is a contemporary dramatisation of the 1950s Hong Kong social and political forces that shaped Lee into the most famous martial arts star and a significant modern day philosopher.

Kapur said he is excited about the music that Rahman will compose for the project. Meanwhile, the filmmaker’s daughter Kaveri is also ready to do a single with Rahman.

“Kaveri and I are going to go to Chennai. She is doing a song with AR Rahman,” Kapur said, adding that she will be recording a single with the Mozart of Madras.

A teenager, Kaveri is Kapur’s daughter with actress Suchitra Krishnamoorthi. She has already provided vocals for songs such as Did you know, Half a heart and Again.
