Pele: Birth of a Legend

pele-ar-rahmanTrailer and music launch of for a great event and this is what is common between Oscar-winning composer A R Rahman and football wizard Pele? Struggling for an answer? Never mind..

The Mozart of Madras finds a lot of parallels between his life and that of the Brazilian football legend.

Rahman, who has scored music for a film about Pele, says his father (also a music composer) went through something similar as that of Pele.

“I can see a lot of parallels in Pele. My father was helping all other people but he died the same day he had his biggest release. When you watch the movie, his (Pele’s) father was an aspiring soccer player but he could never make it,” Rahman told reporters in Mumbai on Monday.
