Oscar-winning Indian musician AR Rahman has just released a video, giving us a glimpse of his collaboration with Brazilian lyricist and singer Anna Beatriz, for the upcoming biopic Pelé: Birth of a Legend.

The biopic is based on the life of Brazilian football legend, Pelé.

“I have been doing many multicultural projects for the past three years, and going into the Brazilian culture, exploring the traditions, the melodies, the rhythms, and their lives was the really fun part,” says AR Rahman in the video.
