Hereâ€™s good news for music lovers and fans of Oscar-winning composer A.R. Rahman.
Sources say that the maestro has, after an interval, agreed to compose again for Tamil cinema. The film is titled Kodai Vidumurai (Summer Holidays). Directed by Kathir, the movie went on the floors recently.
Kathir, who returns to filmmaking after a huge hiatus of nine years, shares a great rapport with the Grammy winner. Most of his previous flicks like Uzhavan, Kadhal Desam, Kadhalar Dhinam, Kadhal Virus were musical blockbusters and needless to add, ARRâ€™s songs created a massive buzz at the time.
Kodai Vidumurai has Srikanth in the lead. The actor was conspicuous by his absence at the launch.
Later he told DC that he was stuck at Shankarâ€™s Nanban shooting outside the city. Several filmmakers from Kâ€™town like Cheran, Ameer, Mysshkin, Sasi, Vetri Maaran, Vikraman, RV Udhayakumar, SP Jananathan and Durai were present to greet their peer and wish him well on his return.
Vivek, Vijayakumar and his actress-wife Manjula, RB Choudhary among others were also present on the occasion. Speaking at the event, Kathir said the film would be a musical entertainer, but kept the composerâ€™s name under wraps.
It was ace lyricist Vaali who let the cat out of the bag by saying the little genius AR Rahman would join hands with Kathir for the fifth time! Vel Raj will handle the camera and Thotta Tharani is the art director.
