Shankar , A.R Rahman split!
Thursday, 13 November , 2003, 14:05
Director Shankar and A.R.Rahman, one of the greatest combinations in Indian film history have split!
From Shankarís debut film Gentleman (1993) to his latest film Boys (2003) this endearing partnership has churned out six film albums and about 40 songs. Almost all of them were chartbusters with Rahmanís peppy music and Shankarís poetic and extravagant picturisation.
The latest we hear is that Shankar has signed Harris Jayaraj to provide music for his new film produced by Oscar Ravichandran. Harris, a former keyboard player with Rahman shot to fame with films like Minnale and the recent Saamy and Kaakha Kaakha. This film will star Vikram, the hottest star in Tamil films.
It is said that Shankar had fallen out with Rahman during the making and re-recording of Boys. Rahman did not turn up for the audio launch of the film even though he was in town. It was lyric writer Vairamuthu who recommended Harris to Shankar. Vairamuthu had fallen out with Rahman earlier over trivial issues and was waiting for his chance to hit back.
However it remains to be seen if the ace director can recreate the old magic with Harris.
