Music director AR Rahman will be making his debut as a story writer and producer with the upcoming film, 99 Songs which is scheduled to release in theatres across the country on April 16. The film features debutants Ehan Bhat and Edilsy Vargas in the lead roles and is directed by popular ad filmmaker, Vishwesh Krishnamoorthy. The trailer of the film was officially launched yesterday (March 23) and the trailer has opened to a very good response from the fans and film buffs. The trailer was neatly packed with some highlight moments in the film and it increased the expectations and curiosity of the audience.

Having said that, it has now been revealed that the trailer work was done by popular Tamil editor Ruben and blockbuster director Atlee. Ruben, who is one of the leading editors in Tamil cinema, is known as a teaser/trailer specialist and he has cut the promo videos for several films that he is not a part of. On that note, he has worked on the recently released trailer of 99 Songs and director Atlee has also been a part of the editing work. The news was shared by AR Rahman himself, who took to his Twitter page to thank Atlee and Ruben for their work. Rahman's tweet read, "Thank you @Atlee_dir and @AntonyLRuben for the new edgy #99songs Trailer cut".

In return, Atlee thanked Rahman for giving him the opportunity to handle the trailer cut works of 99 Songs. Expressing his love and admiration for AR Rahman, Atlee wrote, "Luv u sir , it’s always a blessing to be a part in ur journey sir". Director Atlee has worked with AR Rahman in two of his movies - Mersal and Bigil and the songs in both the movies have turned out to be chartbuster hits. In the audio launch of Bigil, Atlee mentioned that it would be tougher for him to not work with Rahman in his upcoming movies, and going by this collaboration for the trailer work of 99 Songs, it looks like Rahman and Atlee are going to travel a long way.

Atlee is currently busy with the pre-production works of his next directorial project which will be in Hindi. Atlee will be joining hands with Bollywood Superstar Shah Rukh Khan for his next film and Atlee is said to be giving final touches to the script now. The film's official announcement is expected to be made very soon.
