Kabilan Vairamuthu, son of prominent Tamil lyricist and writer Vairamuthu, has penned down couple of songs in Vivegam which features Ajith Kumar in the role of a spy and is now the most watched out for film in Tamil circles. Kabilan Vairamuthu says he has learnt a lot from Ajith during the making of the film and has had the privilege of contributing towards the screenplay of Vivegam.
“Apart from having penned for two songs in Vivegam, I also took part in the script discussion during its pre-production stage and contributed my part to the screenplay of the movie. I always feel screenplay is the ultimate base for cinema. Director Siva gave me full freedom and confidence for my contribution in screenplay and as a lyricist,” says Kabilan Vairamuthu.
Kabilan says that his admiration for Ajith has only gone higher after having worked on Vivegam and watching Ajith closely prepare for his role as a spy. “I learnt a lot from Ajith sir during my interactions with him. Spending time with him was like reading a good book to me. His foresightedness, dedication to his work, food habits and exercise regime for Vivegam are some of the many things that made me like and admire him even more,” said Kabilan Vairamuthu.
The lyricist also adds that the visuals of Vivegam are extraordinary and have come out better than what they had in their minds. “I happened to watch few scenes of the movie including Ajith sir’s intro scene. I must confess that they have come out way stronger and grander than what we wrote on paper. Waiting to watch them on the first day first show with the electrifying Ajith sir fans,” added Kabilan Vairamuthu.
Vivegam is slated to be released on August 24th, 2017 in Tamil and Telugu, titled as Vivekam.
