AR Rahman to compose for Simbu-Gautham Karthik's Pathu Thala
Pathu Thala marks the reunion of the Sillunu Oru Kadhal team of director Krishna, AR Rahman, and the Studio Green banner
AR Rahman has been roped in as the composer of Simbu-Gautham Karthik's upcoming film, Pathu Thala. Directed by Obeli N Krishna, the film is a remake of the Kannada blockbuster Mufti.
Pathu Thala thus marks the reunion of the Sillunu Oru Kadhal team of director Krishna, AR Rahman, and the Studio Green banner.
"Working with Rahman sir is a blessing, and I've received it for the second time. Just like Sillunu Oru Kadhal, this too will be an album that will stand the test of time," says Krishna.
Although AR Rahman has not composed for a remake, whose original had music by a different composer, since Aamir Khan's Ghajini (2008), Krishna reveals that the Oscar-winner agreed to come on board after a narration. "I have made many changes to the original narrative. Rahman sir heard the narration and felt it was an interesting script," reveals Krishna.
While Pathu Thala marks the third collaboration between AR Rahman and Simbu after Vinnaithaandi Varuvaaya and Achcham Yenbadhu Madamaiyada, it marks the composer's second film for Gautham after Kadal.
Pathu Thala, which also stars Priya Bhavani Shankar, Teejay Arunasalam, Kalaiyarasan, is expected to go on floors this March.
