Aishwarya Rai Bachchan set for a grand comeback
In 2010, sound designer Resul Pookutty worked on the music for the Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Rajinikanth-starrer, Robot. Now, as Aishwarya is set to make a comeback to films with Sanjay Gupta’s next Jazbaa, the Oscar-winning sound designer (for Slumdog Millionaire) has been roped in for the project.
“Gupta’s film requires a very gripping sound design. So, when the makers were brainstorming over who to rope in, they unanimously thought of Resul as the best choice for the job,” says an insider.
While Gupta couldn’t be reached for a comment since he is at the Cannes Film Festival to promote the film, co-producer Sachiin J Joshi says, “Resul is a brilliant technician. His skills and accuracy in sound design are much needed for an action-thriller like ours. That’s why Sanjay decided on Resul, and we decided not to compromise and go with his gut feeling.”
