ANIRUDH TO ENTHRALL WITH A NEW-DIMENSIONAL FOLK NUMBER FOR KANAA
A pure commonality exists among all the music directors who work with Anirudh and it looks inevitably convincing as well. In fact, this has been a pre-existing scenario even before this young musical sparkler debuted in film industry.
This time, its music director Dhibu Ninan Thomas sharing those same words as he shares his experience while recently recording a folk song with Anirudh for the film ‘Kanaa’.
“We recorded the song at midnight at Anirudh’s studio that had an informal set up. It was so much easy to work with him. All throughout the session, we could feel the positive and cool vibes prevalent there, which made the song come out well,” says Dhibu Ninan Thomas, who has composed a new dimensional folk number for Aishwarya Rajesh starrer ‘Kanaa’, directed by Arunraja Kamaraj. “We have tried something on a new panache with the folk genre. Usually, the instruments like Piano and strings would have more emphasis in melodic romantic numbers, but we have utilized it for a folk number that comes blended with our traditional assets of Thavil and Nathaswaram,” opines Dhibu.
Furthermore, he adds citing that although Anirudh has crooned many folk numbers, this one will be gratuitously new from his kitty. The versatile lyricist Arunraja Kamaraj has penned this beauteous folk song, which will be filmed Aishwarya Rajesh and Darshan. The latter plays Aishwarya’s love interest and this song is about he tries to woo his beloved belle.
Touted to be a film based on women cricket, Kanaa marks the debut of Sivakarthikeyan as a producer with his newly launched production studio –Sivakarthikeyan Productions. The film featuring Aishwarya Rajesh and Sathyaraj in lead roles has geared up for its audio launch to be held in grandeur on August 23. While Sivakarthikeyan had recently announced of having three most adorable pillars of his career – Filmmaker Pandiraj, Anirudh and D Imman to launch the film’s audio, Smriti Mandhana – Indian Women’s Cricket Team Captain will be the guest of honour for this occasion and she will be launching the audio.
Director Arunraja Kamaraj’s Kanaa is not a biopic but a fictional drama on an aspiring girl’s dream run to make it bigger as a women cricketer.
