Ilaiyaraaja on board Aadhi's Clap
Directed by Prithvi Aditya, the film, which goes with a tagline - The Sound of Success, was launched in Hyderabad today
Maestro Ilaiyaraaja has boarded the team of Aadhi's Telugu-Tamil bilingual sports-drama, Clap, as the music composer. Directed by Prithvi Aditya, the film, which goes with a tagline - The Sound of Success, was launched in Hyderabad today.
Aadhi claims that Clap has an interesting premise, which will keep the audience invested in the narrative. "The sports element will be depicted with authenticity, and the script will be devoid of the usual done-to-death sports-drama tropes. The leading ladies - Akanksha Singh and Krisha Kurup - have undergone three months of vigorous training for looking the parts,” he says.
On working with Ilaiyaraaja, the Eeram actor tells, “We are blessed to have Ilaiyaraja sir on board. Even though its a sports-drama, he is the only composer who can ace the musical interpretation of human emotions. For decades, his sound has had an emotional connection with everyone across languages, and I believe the plethora of emotions in our film will be conveyed through his music.”
Aadhi will be seen as an athlete in Clap, which also features Nasser as the antagonist and Prakash Raj in a crucial role. The film is being bankrolled jointly by IB Karthikeyan and M Rajasekhar Reddy.
