OSCAR winning Indian composer AR Rahman has been roped in to score the music for Kevin Lima’s Bollywood-style animated musical adventure titled Monkeys of Mumbai.

The film is said to be inspired by the Hindu epic Ramayana and it will see Rahman teaming up with Gurinder Chadha, Paul Berges and Kevin Lima, who directed Disney’s animated Tarzan(1999) before turning to live-action hits like 102 Dalmatians(2000) and Enchanted(2007). The project will be backed by DreamWorks Animation.

The movie revolves around a man whose wife is kidnapped by a demon king.

Lima will approach the story through the point of view of two common monkeys, who become unlikely heroes.

“Ever since Enchanted, I’ve been looking for a musical. When DreamWorks Animation approached me with the prospect of doing a Bollywood musical, I knew this was the one,” said Lima.
