Yuvan Shankar Raja who is the music director of Venkat Prabhu directed Masss has been replaced by SS Thaman!
The grapevine has it that Yuvan who did not deliver the songs on time has irked Studio Green the producers and hero Suriya. Remember that Masss team has already announced the release date as May 1 and the unit is working round the clock in brisk pace to finish the film on time. A lot of CG work has to be done as Masss is a supernatural thriller.
A source from the unit says that Suriya was mighty pissed off as Yuvan did not deliver the song on time and whatever he gave, were not up to the mark. The production unit had already planned to shoot this particular song with Suriya and Nayanthara at Mohan studio where a huge set was erected.
So Thaman was roped in by Studio Green in the last minute and he quickly remixed a hit number from Hindi film R... Rajkumar. For obvious reasons, director Venkat Prabhu seems to be upset with Suriya's decision and on condition of anonymity our sources say that a miffed Yuvan who heard about the replacement has refused to compose the background score of Masss hence there is a huge confusion prevailing in the unit.
Mean time, Masss cinematographer RD Rajasekar is busy with AR Murugadoss' Hindi film and hence Venkat Prabhu has roped in Sakthi Saravanan to shoot this particular remix composed by Thaman and Baba Bhaskar is the choreographer.
