Dharan scores music for ‘Manal Kayiru’Published: February 18, 2016
‘Manal Kayiru’ is a popular 1982 Tamil movie directed by Visu, starring S V Shekhar, Shanthi Krishna, Manorama and Visu himself in lead roles.
S Ve Sekhar began work on a sequel to the film last month, with his son Ashwin Shekhar signed on to play the lead role. Now the latest update is that composer Dharan will score music for the new version.
The music for the original was composed by the legendary M S Viswanathan, it may be recalled. Dharan, who is happy about bagging the offer, says he has already completed recording a song for the movie.
“The song was crooned by Mukesh and Mansi and it has come out well. It will have a few dialogues from the original,” says Dharan. He also says he is aware that his work would be compared to that of MSV. “I can’t beat him, but I have given my best,” he adds.
