You can now listen to the Jai Shri Ram song in the voice of Shankar Mahadevan, with the makers of Darshan-starrer Roberrt unveiling the new version on the occasion of Shri Rama Navami.
An official announcement was made by director Tharun Kishore Sudhir on his Twitter handle. He later followed it with another tweet, revealing the major change in the new version of Jai Shri Ram, and asking the audience to guess the name of the singer who has given his powerful voice for the track. All of them voted for Shankar Mahadevan. “Yes, many of you guessed it right... it's the powerful voice of Shankar Mahadevan sir for the new version of Jai Shri Ram. The video also contains new making clips which were not released before. Tomorrow morning at 10.05 am,” he posted.
The earlier version was in the voice of singer Divya Kumar. “We had initially tried to get this track recorded by Shankar Mahadevan, but he was not available. Now that we got to have the song recorded in a powerful voice, we decided to go ahead with his voice,” says director Tharun.
The track is composed by Arjun Janya and features Darshan and Jason D’Souza. The latter plays a pivotal role in Roberrt.
