Cannes: AR Rahman’s directorial debut ‘Le Musk’ was launched at the 75th edition of Cannes Film Festival.

Le Musk has been Rahman’s pet project for five years. It’s a virtual reality film, which Rahman extrapolated from a story idea suggested by his wife Saira Banu, The Indian Express reported.

He developed a 36-minute film about a girl, who was orphaned 20 years earlier when she was very young. She sets out to find out those men, aided by the singular memory of the scent of those men.

The film has been made with the help of several technicians from around the world.

“It’s a great honour. Le Musk is premiering at Cannes XR. It’s a project of love and we are all excited,” Rahman was quoted as saying by ANI.

Rahman shared pictures from Cannes XR, where Le Musk premiered at specially designed seats with VR goggles.

Le Musk is designed to provide viewers an immersive experience including aroma and motion.

“My amazing #Lemusk army ..really grateful to my faithful team ,who believed in my vision and gave their precious time to work on this project! @Festival_Cannes #AnandKishore @srghvn @hashimzainn @KDoucette10 #Cannes2022 (sic),” Rahman tweeted after the premiere of Le Musk.


Rahman, who walked the red carpet as part of an Indian delegation led by Union Minister Anurag Thakur, revealed that he’s started working on his next VR film ‘Confessions’.

“Now this (Le Musk) is finished and we’re happy about it, we just want to do something which is much more simpler, but more deeper in emotion. A script is 60% ready,” Rahman told Variety.
