A R Rahman and hisÂ Enthiranmusic has not only become popular worldwide, but is ruling the Tamil Nadu domestic music charts. In the Mirchi Top 10 countdown for the week ending August 14, four out of the 10 songs are from the Rajinikanth sci-fi film!
Kilimanjaroâ€¦ is on top of the charts, and three otherEnthiran songs are in fourth, fifth and sixth positions on the Mirchi Top 10.
Think Music, who is distributing the album, says the CD sales of the album have crossed the magic figure of Rs 3 lakhs, which no other album has done in the recent years.
It is phenomenal by any yardstick, and perhaps Rahmanâ€™s best ever performance of the decade. Shankar and AR Rahman combo surely rocks once again.
The fans are also emotional about the album because they feel Rahman has no live projects in Tamil afterÂ Enthiran.
The Mozart of Madras had three albums released in 2010 -Â VTV, Raavananand nowÂ Enthiran. Currently, Rahman is working on three Hindi films, besides his many Hollywood commitments.
He has not signed any new films in Tamil and his regulars like Shankar have gone to Harris Jayaraj to do hisÂ 3 Idiots remake.
Meanwhile, asÂ Enthiran lords over the charts, Yuvan Shankar Raja (Paiyaa, Baana Kathadi, Naan Mahaan Alla) and GV Prakashâ€™s (Madrasapattinam) lucky streak seem to have come to an end as the Mozart of Madras rules.
