Shankar’s big-budget Anniyan where he is paired for the first time with Harris Jayaraj will have a big audio launch in the first week of April. Those who heard the songs say that all of them are rocking especially the Jassie Gift number which is surely going to be a chartbuster.
Anniyan shooting including patchwork is complete and Vikram is currently dubbing for the film. He has already finished dubbing for three reels and the other post production work including special effects and graphics are being done at brisk pace.
The audio of Anniyan has been grabbed by Star Music for a whopping amount but they want only a April launch as Chandramukhi and Sachin(audio launch on March 16) audio would have lost their steam by then. And more important who is going to listen to audio during examination time?
Music in all Shankar films were big hits with mass appeal and scored heavily among the youth. ‘Oscar’ Ravichandran the producer of Anniyan has sent a letter to all theatres that he will release the film on May 5 or 12 the latest as monsoon is expected in Kerala in the first week of June, as the film has gone for a record price there.
Added to that May first week is the best season to release a big budget film especially in Andhra where Vikram has a huge following.
