Mumbai: Oscar winning composer A.R. Rahman and British-American singer-songwriter Bishop Briggs have collaborated for a song titled “I am more” for the forthcoming film “Love Sonia”. The drama centers on a 17-year-old woman who endangers her life to save her sister from a global human trafficking network that spans India, Hong Kong and Los Angeles.
“‘Love Sonia’ is more than a film; it’s a movement, a conversation and an opening into what’s actually happening in the world today. I feel so honoured to be a part of what Tabrez (director Tabrez Noorani) has fearlessly brought to light,” Briggs said in a statement. “A.R. is a complete icon and to have collaborated with someone who truly inspires me is an incredible experience I’ll never forget. Tabrez and A.R. are legends and to have been able to work with them on something so special that I know will make an imprint on the world, is something I am extremely grateful for,” she added.
Rahman shared that projects like these happen with a lot of good intention to propel positive changes in the society. “It was a pleasure to work once again with Tabrez Noorani, this time as the director; Academy-nominated producer David Womark and the talented artiste Bishop Briggs. I wish this project the very best.” Noorani considers it an honour to “reunite with our ‘Slumdog Millionaire’ award-winning composer, A. R. Rahman who has teamed up with a talented and powerfully emerging artiste, Bishop Briggs on ‘I Am more’. I must say it truly is a magical pairing”.
The film’s co-producer Amar Butala said that “Love Sonia” will “move you and shock you”. Executive Producer Shalini Thackeray added that it’s a great honour to have a maestro like A. R. Rahman come on board for “Love Sonia”. The film stars Manoj Bajpayee, Richa Chadha, Rajkummar Rao, Sai Tamhankar, Adil Hussain, Anupam Kher, Demi Moore, Mark Duplass, Freida Pinto, Mrunal Thakur and Riya Sisodia.
“Love Sonia” is produced by Tamasha Talkies, David Womark and Noorani. Presented by Samraaj Talkies in association with India Take One Productions, Cinemantra Entertainment, Media Dynasty Consulting Group and Prime Focus Group, the film is slated to release on September 14.
