Oscar and Grammy winning composer AR Rahman has joined the much awaited U.S.-India-Bangladesh film 'No Land's Man' as a composer and co-producer.

Directed by Mostofa Sarwar Farooki, the film chronicles a South Asian man's journey and how his life becomes complicated after meeting an Australian woman in the US. AR Rahman is thrilled to be part of the film.

The composer believes that as the new world gives birth to new challenges, it's time to tell new stories to the audience, according to reports by Variety,

Indian thespian Nawazuddin Siddiqui ("Sacred Games") stars with Australian theatre actor Megan Mitchell, making her feature debut, and Bangladeshi musician and actor Tahsan Rahman Khan.

AR Rahman is quite confident that 'No Land's Man' will surely touch the heart of the audience.

The film, shot in the US, Australia and India, is predominantly in English with some dialogue in Hindi and Urdu.

"The filming experience for this project was challenging but a fulfilling one," Siddiqui told Variety. "AR Rahman's brilliance will definitely make the film richer."

“No Land’s Man” won the MPAA and Asia Pacific Screen Awards’ Script Development fund in 2014; was part of the Asian Project Market at Busan; and was chosen as the best project at India’s Film Bazaar the same year.

The film is a production by U.S. outfit Dialectic (“Screwdriver”) and Bangladesh’s Chabial (“Television”), in association with India’s Magic If Films (“Manto”), Bangladesh’s Sun Music & Motion Pictures (“Lalon”) and Bongo BD, Bangladesh’s largest streamer.

“Farooki and I first spoke about ‘No Land’s Man’ at Film Bazaar in 2014,” producer Srihari Sathe told Variety. “Between then and now, the film has become even more relevant as it looks at what it means to be a vulnerable person in a racially-divided world.”

Post-production was underway simultaneously in the U.S., India and Bangladesh, before being temporarily suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic.
