A R Rahman may be busy dividing his time among the cities of Chennai, Mumbai and Los Angeles but now after several delayed Bollywood projects, he's determined to make sure his projects in Mumbai don't suffer.

Rahman is now collaborating on the background score of Raanjhanaa from LA.

Says a source close to the project, "Other filmmakers in the past have found it difficult to keep pace with Rahman's travel plans. The last stage of a film score, namely the background music, has been especially problematic for many composers in the past. But not any more. Rahman is on the computer and the phone, working on the music for Raanjhanaa."

"It's very encouraging and inspiring to see Rahman's enthusiasm about the music," says Raanjhanaa director Aanand Rai. "We're done with the songs and now, he's working with on the background score from LA. I don't like working on the computer, so we're on the phone constantly getting the right lines and notes in place."

"For Rahman, Raanjhanaa is like his first score," Aanand continues. "After all these years, he hasn't lost his enthusiasm and passion for his music. He is in a different continent but he is constantly connecting with me on the music."

One of the biggest problems filmmakers face when they work with Rahman is that he likes to work in the night.

"I don't know about others but with me, the time difference worked to our advantage," Aanand quips.
