a r rahman to rock Olympics with Punjabi beats!

A.R. Rahman is set to team up with Hollywood director Danny Boyle again - this time to compose a song for the London Olympics' opening ceremony. The music maestro reveals it will be a Punjabi song celebrating Indian influence in Britain.

"Clarifying the report on the Olympics track I am composing... It's a track in Punjabi celebrating the Indian influence in the UK," Rahman, who worked with Boyle in Oscar-winning film "Slumdog Millionaire" and "127 Hours", posted on his Facebook page.

"It's a part of a medley in the Olympics opening ceremony, according to Danny Boyle's creative wishes!" he added.

It has also been reported that music composer Ilayaraja's composition "Naanthaan ungappanda", from Kamal Hassan's 1980 film "Ram Lakhan" will be a part of the opening ceremony too.

The 2012 London Olympics will be held July 27 to Aug 12.
