Bangalore: Oscar award winning musician A R Rahman has credited ailing Tamil superstar Rajinikanth for teaching him the ropes of the film industry and has hoped that the actor, currently convalescing in Singapore, recovers soon.

The 61-year-old is currently in the island nation for "treatment and rejuvenation" after he was discharged from a Chennai hospital, where he was being treated for respiratory problems.

After working together on last year`s blockbuster `Endhiran`, the `Jai Ho` hitmaker is now composing the music for Rajinikanth`s upcoming film `Rana`.

"Only two songs are yet to be composed. I will do it after Rajinikanth returns from Singapore. I have learned a lot in my career in the film industry from him," Rahman told reporters on the eve of his concert here.

It was on the first day of ‘Rana`s’ shoot on April 29 that the star was hospitalised for exhaustion.
