AR Rahman has yet again broken new boundaries, with the amazing soundtrack for Walt Disney’s new feature film Million Dollar Arm. Featuring music composed and performed by two-time Academy Award-winning composer A. R. Rahman, the soundtrack includes collaborations with Australian hip-hop artist Iggy Azalea, Grammy nominated rapper Wale and Scottish singer-songwriter KT Tunstall.
The first track ‘Million Dollar Dream’ features the edgy vocals of Iggy Azalea combined with inimitable sound of Bollywood playback singer Sukhwinder Singh.
The film stars Jon Hamm (Mad Men), Suraj Sharma (Life of Pi) and Madhur Mittal (Slumdog Millionaire) Million Dollar Arm, which releases in cinemas on 29th August in the U.K , is based on real events and tells the story of a down-on-his-luck sports agent JB Bernstein (Hamm), who stumbles upon an intriguing idea when flicking TV channels between an Indian cricket match and Susan Boyle’s unforgettable audition on Britain’s Got Talent.
“I’m excited to share with music fans some unusual collaborations with Iggy Azalea, Wale, and KT Tunstall on the music in Million Dollar Arm,” said A.R. Rahman.
“The soundtrack we created together truly captures the beautiful culture and energy behind the film – reminding us all how important it is to be open to new possibilities in life. The word Disney always brings a smile to me. I hope this soundtrack and movie stay blessed in many ways.”
The film follows Bernstein as he flies to India in search of the next big major league baseball star. Finally, he brings the competition’s winner and runner-up – two 18 year-olds – Rinku Singh (Sharma) and Dinesh Patel (Mittal) who have never picked up a baseball in their lives – to Los Angeles and sets about to teach them how to play the American game.
The film tracks the physical and emotional journey of the two young men as they set off on their adventure to a foreign land, and leads to life changing consequences, not just for them but surprisingly JB Bernstein – who also goes on his own personal journey of self-discovery.
