Press Trust of India  |  Chennai 

Oscar-winning composer A R Rahman's sister A R Raihanah, also a music director, will be composing a music track on Chennai's culture and it will be screened during the Madras Week celebrations next month.

"A R Raihanah will be composing a track and the video song has been named Ithu Namma Chennai," Raindropss, a youth-based social organisation said in a statement here today.

Leading playback singers are expected to be a part of this project and the video song will feature people who made Chennai proud.

Raihanah is the brand ambassador of Raindropss, which propagates social awareness messages through theme songs and short films.

Madras Week events, celebrating the founding of the city on August 22, 1639, are to be held between August 17-24 here as in the previous years.
