Oscar award winning sound engineer Resul Pookutty is turning producer. He will be producing a film based on the life on times of Guru Nanak.
Double Oscar winner A.R.Rahman who has been a long time friend of Resul will work on the latter's maiden production venture. Rahman will be supervising the music composed by Finnish composer Tuomas Kantelinen. However Rahman's name will not appear in the credits of the film since he does not prefer to share credit.
Tuomas Kantelinen has earlier scored music for films like The Legend of Hercules, Mindhunters and Mongol. Apart from film's he has worked for an opera, chamber music, televisions shows and jingles.
Harinder Sikka will be directing this flick and Harish Khanna has been roped in to play the titular role. However graphics will be used to show Guru Nanak appears in his grab. Since Sikhism does not allow anyone to appear with Guru Nanak's attire.
Resul has started the groundwork for this film in 2012. The film will be co-produced by Samar Sikka and it is expected to go on floors this year.
