Yuvan Shankar Raja’s single for Ajith’s film is all set to hit the stands. Chennai Times gets you the story
It looks like releasing single track albums is the current rage in Kollywood. Ever since Vaanam’s single track album, which was released recently, became a hit, producers have been keen on releasing such single track albums. Venkat Prabhu’s Mankatha, which has Ajith in the lead, will have its single track launch tomorrow. A Mumbai-based audio label is introducing the single CD track, which will have the trailer song Vilayadu Mankatha….
Speaking about the single Mankatha track, Yuvan said, “This is the first track that I composed for Mankatha. This is what we do, and we do it the best! Hip hop you know we don’t stop! Here comes the single! Vilaiyadu Mankatha!” The music director is pleased that his Vaanam single track was able to create a trend in Tamil music. The buzz is that more big ticket movies with popular music directors are going for a single-track launch, which will be a sort of a first look of the film.
The audio label is going for a big launch of Mankatha’s music. A spokesperson of the music label said, “Mankatha has been able to create a buzz even before its release due to Ajith. We see a positive wave in Ajith’s Mankatha and the youthful music of Yuvan Shankar Raja.”
Adding to the excitement, Mankatha CDs will come with a poster personally autographed by Ajith himself. Vilayadu Mankatha… has been sung by Yuvan Shankar Raja, Ranjith, Premji Amaran, Anita and Sucharitha, a new talent introduced by Yuvan. Venkat Prabhu has said that the song is set in Bangkok in a club and was shot for four consecutive days. The song’s lyrics is a mixture of three languages. While Yuvan has penned the English lyrics, his uncle Gangai Amaran has written Tamil part of it. The Hindi lines have been provided by Sucharitha.
