It’s like being born again as a new man: AR Rahman
AR Rahman has also co-written 99 Songs with director Vishwesh Krishnamoorthy. Since the film marks a new beginning in Rahman’s career, he said, “It’s like being born again as a new man.

It is my first attempt and I hope we have done our best. My wife and daughters have been a great support.”
