Two of the greatest gifts Tamil cinema has given to the world of music are currently in London. Ilaiyaraja is in London on work related to Neethane En Ponvasantham, Gautham Menon’s movie for which he is doing the score. His director is clearly in awe of him and revealed that he feels honored to watch the maestro at work. Musicians from Budapest had been roped in but Gautham was more enthusiastic about the children’s choir used for a song saying that it will remind you of your childhood, school, college and everything from the past.
As for AR Rahman, he is also in London on work. He dropped in to visit Rajini on the sets of Kochadaiyaan and the two great men were spotted bonding big time. Their enthusiasm for their craft was plain for all to see and sources said that their eagerness to learn new things about all things work-related was admirable.
