No Land’s Man: AR Rahman comes aboard Nawazuddin Siddiqui film as composer and co-producer
AR Rahman has turned producer for Nawazuddin Siddiqui's upcoming film No Man's Land. Directed by Bangladeshi filmmaker Mostofa Sarwar Farooki, the film is about a South Asian man’s journey that gets complicated when he meets an Australian woman in the US.
Nawazuddin Siddiqui will be seen playing the lead role in the film, which also stars Australian theatre actor Megan Mitchell. She is making her feature film debut with No Land's Man. Bangladeshi musician and actor Tahsan Rahman Khan will also be seen alongside Nawazuddin.
The film is majorly shot in the US, Australia, and India and is predominantly in English with some dialogues in Hindi and Urdu.
Talking about No Land’s Man, AR Rahman told Variety, "Time always gives birth to new worlds, new ideals The newborn world has new challenges and new stories to tell. This is one such story."
No Land's Man won the MPAA and Asia Pacific Screen Awards' Script Development Fund in 2014. It 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 post-production of No Land's Man was underway in the US, India, and Bangladesh before it was suspended temporarily due to the novel coronavirus pandemic.
Apart from No Land's Man, AR Rahman has also produced 99 Songs, which premiered at Busan last year. The film is waiting for its release due to the lockdown.
