Actor Simbu has proved his versatility as an actor and singer in Tamil cinema. Recently, he even made his debut as a composer for Santhanam starrer Sakka Podu Podu Raja. Now, Simbu is crossing borders and making his debut as a singer for upcoming Kannada film Iruvudellava Bittu. The director believes Simbu’s voice to the song will help it garner a lot of attention.
“The lyrics by Dr Nagendra Prasad talks about how people inflict troubles upon themselves. The song advocates that it’s better to forget everything and enjoy life. The composer, Sridhar V Sambram, has created a high-energy tune. Simbu really liked the tune too, and agreed to sing,” said director Kantha Kannali, according to The New Indian Express.
The song has been recorded and it took the team four months to ready the recording process. “We wanted to go beyond language and make music. That’s why we wanted a celebrity who ‘s also a good musician. Simbu fit the bill, and he has really added value to the song," adds the director, who is in awe of the actor's dedication to his work. "He learnt the meaning of each word and got the diction right. He rehearsed quite a few times before the final recording.”
Simbu is currently shooting for Mani Ratnam’s Chekka Chivantha Vaanam, in which he shares screen space for the first time with Arvind Swami, Vijay Sethupathi, Arun Vijay and Jyothika. Following the debacle of his last two films, Simbu has pinned high hopes on Ratnam’s project for which he has shed weight and is said to even come on time for shoots.
