Academy Award-winning music composer AR Rahman has been announced as the ambassador for the British Academy of Film and Television Arts' (BAFTA) Breakthrough Initiative. Supported by Netflix, the initiative aims to identify, celebrate, and support up to five talents working in film, games, or TV in India.

Speaking about working with BAFTA, Rahman says, "This is a unique opportunity for promising artists to be supported by a world-renowned organisation, to not only make connections with other talented creatives across the world but to be mentored by BAFTA-winners and nominees. I am looking forward to seeing the brilliant talent chosen from India to be showcased on a global stage." 

The flagship initiative, applications for which are now open, is part of BAFTA's year-round work to support new talent, operating alongside their awards ceremonies worldwide. As part of BAFTA Breakthrough India, a jury of British and Indian industry experts will select five talents from across India to take part in the year-long mentoring and guidance programme. The participants will receive one-to-one mentoring, global networking opportunities, free access to BAFTA events and screenings for 12 months, and full-voting BAFTA membership.

Meanwhile, on the movie front, AR Rahman has the Hindi film Atrangi Re and Malayalam film Aadujeevitham in the pipeline, apart from Tamil films like Cobra, Ayalaan, and Ponniyin Selvan.
