If it was Vaanam earlier, where the producer released a single Yuvan Shankar Raja track much before its audio release, now it is the turn of the Ajith and Venkat Prabhu combo flick Mankatha to follow suit.
Vilayadu Mankatha, the single track which has been composed by Yuvan, was released in the market on Friday.
Talking about his track and about teaming up with Ajith once again, Yuvan says, “Vilayadu Mankatha, written by my uncle Gangai Amaran, was the first track I composed for the movie. It is a great privilege to compose music for Ajith’s 50th film“. The song was shot at a club in Bangkok, with two hundred and fifty junior artistes and fifty dancers from Mumbai, Chennai and Bangkok.
Heaping praises on Venkat Prabhu, Ajith Kumar said, “I have enjoyed every single day of filming Mankatha. Venkat Prabhu is a very sensible and dedicated director. He is definitely one of the finest directors that I have worked with. I’m happy to be working with Yuvan once again! The song albums of our earlier films, Dheena and Billa, were very well received. Hope Mankatha’s album lives up to expectations. Producer Dhayanidhi Alagiri has been extremely supportive.“
The movie has an ensemble cast of Ajith, Arjun, Trisha, Lakshmi Rai, Vaibhav, Premgi Amaran, Anjali, Mahat, Ganesh Venkatram among others.
