Venkat Prabhu’s upcoming Tamil comedy Party, which marks his first-time collaboration with his composer brother Premgi Amaren, has some interesting names associated with its album.
Not long ago, it happened to be the first film to feature voices of Suriya and Karthi for a song. Now, the industry grapevine is that popular composer-singer G V Prakash and Anirudh Ravichander have each sung a song in the album and their songs will be released in due course.
According to a source from the film’s unit, while Anirudh's song will be a peppy number, GV Prakash's will be a romantic one, and the makers are confident both the songs will be liked by audiences and will be widely celebrated.
When Prabhu roped in Suriya and Karthi to sing for his album, he told TNM: “All my films so far have had music by Yuvan Shankar Raja. This is the first time I’ve collaborated with my brother Premgi, who has composed music for Party. Since it’s a new collaboration, we wanted each track to be unique, and star power to elevate the album and garner attention. Hence, we approached Suriya and Karthi and they were cool enough to sing.”
Apparently, Suriya had reservations about singing. “It took some effort to convince Suriya. He even wanted to listen to the track first and then agreed to sing. Karthi, on the other hand, instantly gave his nod. He has already sung in my film Biriyani, and he had no qualms about singing again. Karthi just landed in the studio and we straightaway started recording. The song has come out very well.”
Party, which boasts of an ensemble cast consisting of Jai, Shaam, Shiva, Sathyaraj, Ramya Krishnan, Regina Cassandra, Nivetha Pethuraj and Sanchita Shetty among others, is gearing up for release in August. Produced by T Siva of Amma Creations, the film has cinematography by Rajesh Yadav and editing by KL Praveen.
