Ask A.R. Rahman about his favorite compositions so far in his career. He says, “Yes, it’s my first love – Roja…”
Thusly, the maestro cannot find himself adhered to any others as ‘Roja’ as it means special to him. With his ‘Oscar victory’ getting him far-famed all over the globe, K. Balachandar of Kavithalaya Productions has planned to dub the film in English with a different title.
The original version had Rahman scoring music with mono recording techniques in a studio near Kodambakkam Bridge. But now, he will be rerecording the music with 5.1 Digital Surround. Manirathnam will be trimming few portions with a shorter duration than original version savoring to the tastes of international audiences.
