Gautham Menon has said that he and AR Rahman did not receive any payment for the World Classical Tamil Conference theme song. The song was penned by the Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu M Karunanidhi. The 5-minute song was filmed for over three months as some of the scenes were shot from a helicopter. Rahman took about three months to compose the music for this theme song, he added. Almost all top singers and musicians from Kollywood are involved in this song.
The Tamil Nadu government is making arrangements to have this song telecast in all the cinema theatres.
