New Delhi: Double Oscar-award winning Indian music composer AR Rahman has revealed that he`s coming out with a music video. Speculations are rife that it`s the visual representation of his recent international collaboration with English sensation Dido for a number in Danny Boyle`s ‘127 Hours’.

"Hey Guys, watch out for the world premiere of my new music video… coming soon," he tweeted.

The 44-year-old also linked a picture with the comment, that shows him wearing a suede jacket and goggles near a helicopter. He, however, leaves the viewers at the mercy of assumptions that it is the video of the popular song ‘If I Rise’.

The Mozart of Madras, as he is fondly called, has apparently also bagged a Golden Globe nomination for his soundtrack for ‘127 Hours’, which is his second stint at Hollywood`s second most prestigious annual movie prize after Boyle`s Mumbai-based underdog drama "Slumdog Millionaire".

The Chennai-based composer is competing in the Original Score for a motion picture category at the gala.

Starring ‘Spider-Man’ star James Franco, the movie is a biopic about mountaineer Aron Ralston, who was trapped in a canyon for five days by a boulder that fell on his arm and he freed himself by amputating the limb.
