Director Vasanthabalan who hugely impressed in Angadi Theru is ready with another classic Kaaviya Thalaivan which is slated for release this friday. The film is about the lives of two theatre artistes played by Siddharth and Prithviraj and the competition that exists between them in a small drama troupe. In a recent interview Director Vasanthabalan revealed that he initially wanted Suriya and Vikram in the lead roles but later opted for Siddharth and Prithiviraj.
A.R.Rahman's soundtrack for the film was already rated 5 stars by most of the critics and will be a huge backbone for the film. "The reason we approached Rahman sir is because music drives the story in our film. We wanted someone who could promise us great music. Rahman sir spent nearly two years to give the kind of music, which plays a vital role in the story, Even for Rahman sir, this project was challenging as he hasn't worked on something like this before. He even gave us most of the songs even before we went on floors with the film, contrary to how he usually works on a project." said Vasanthabalan to IANS.
