Rahman speaks about Pele's music

 Oscar-winning composer A R Rahman might know everything about music, but when he was approached to score for a biopic on Pele,

he had to Google to find out about the legendary footballer.Rahman has scored music for Pele: Birth of a Legend, based on the life of the iconic Brazilian soccer player.    

 When I was approached for the project, I first Googled who Pele was, because my life is all music. I saw amazing things about him and who he was. After that I read the script. I had tremendous respect for the project,' Rahman said in an interview to PTI.

The Slumdog Millionaire hit maker says giving background score for a film is easier than creating a standalone song, which needs to hold for itself.

Movies have this charm, where you just have to follow the story. Music is just a part of filmmaking, whereas a standalone song has to hold for itself.

Scoring is much simpler than writing an individual piece of music, because the story itself tells you what to do,' he said.
