During a recent interaction with a leading daily, director Siva opened up about working with Anirudh Ravichander in ‘Vivegam’ and said that the young composer is an absolute livewire. He went on to add that he has the ability to come up with songs which resonate with the youth.
“Anirudh is a livewire and he is very energetic. He knows the pulse of the youth. We worked together in Vedalam and in Vivegam too he has done a remarkable job. In the Surviva song, he has introduced EDM and hip hop. Yogi B has sung the song and he recorded for a Tamil film song in Chennai after several years. The song is already topping the charts. Anirudh has given a variety of songs which include a Carnatic song,” he added.
Well, we must say that these are some kind words and Anirudh will be quite touched by them.
In case you weren’t aware, ‘Vivegam’ is touted to be a spy-thriller and features Ajith Kumar in a brand new avatar. Shot extensively in Europe, it is believed to be at par with Hollywood movies. Besides Ajith, it features Kajal Aggarwal and Akshara Haasan in the lead. Bollywood star Vivek Oberoi too is a part of the film. He will be playing the antagonist in ‘Vivegam’.
Interestingly, ‘Vivegam’ will be Ajith’s first release of the year. He was last seen in ‘Vedalam’. An action-drama, it also featured Shruti Haasan in the lead and fared well at the box office.
