It’s not Rahman, but Anirudh to join the most-awaited sequel?

Soon after he’s free from 2.0’s responsibilities, star director Shankar will kick-start Bharatheeyudu 2, a sequel to the Kamal Haasan-starrer blockbuster 1996 patriotic drama, Bharatheeyudu. Leading Tamil production house Lyca Productions will bankroll this highly-anticipated sequel.

As per the latest buzz, Shankar is keen on roping in young music composer Anirudh Ravichander for Bharatheeyudu 2. However, an official announcement is awaited in this regard. Incidentally, Oscar winning composer AR Rahman had scored a memorable soundtrack for Bharatheeyudu, and one wonders what might have caused his exit from the sequel.
