Kamal sings in Ilayaraja’s musicPublished: February 5, 2016
Kamal Haasan has crooned for a song composed by maestro Ilayaraja in ‘Muthuramalingam’, a film featuring Karthik and his son Gautham Karthik in lead roles.
The song, whose starting line is ‘Therku Desa Singamada…’, was recorded recently. “The Isaignani has used live instruments and brought in around 300 folk musicians from down south to perform for the number,” sources said.
Interestingly, lyrics for the song were penned by veteran Panchu Arunachalam, who introduced Ilayaraja in ‘Annakili’ more than three decades ago.
“Initially, there were plans to make someone like S P Balasubrahmanyaam to sing the song. But Ilayaraja was particular about having Kamal on board,” sources added. The film is being directed by Rajadurai.
