There were reports that celebrated Indian singer-composer is planning to direct a movie soon but he has a different story to tell."I am not thinking about directing. I am scripting a film and also co-producing it. It's in the process," he said.

Directed by Shankar, 'I' features Vikram in the lead role. The film that is slated for Jan 9 release, also features Amy Jackson and Upen Patel in pivotal roles. Talking about the film, Rahman said "Shankar told me about this story 15 years back and since then he nurtured and worked on this story. I knew about this film so I did this film."

Rahman is once again in the race for an Academy Award this year. His work for "Million Dollar Arm", "The Hundred-Foot Journey" and Indian film "Kochadaiiyaan" are part of the long list released by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences on its website recently.
