The audio launch of Kanna Laddu Thinna Aasaiya ( KLTA) was a grand function held at the Devi Cineplex on Sunday (Dec 9) evening. The event went off smoothly  despite the surging crowds of fans.

Santhanam who turns producer with his Handmade Films banner, was seen handling the crowds through the microphone.  Ramanarayanan of Thenandal Films  is the co producer.The audio was launched by Shankar and received by STR who has done a cameo. The music is by Thaman who was also present. A trailer, a teaser and two songs were shown.

The film seems like a complete laugh riot with every line bringing down the roof. A club song with Santhanam, Powerstar Dr Srinivasan and debutant Sethu and heroine Vishakha Singh was screened along with a song titled ‘love letter’ between  Santhanam and Vishakha, which was a take on an old hit number.

The speech by Santhanam was emotional but wrapped in humour that made the guests on stage clap in glee. Shankar and STR were seen laughing the loudest and enjoying themselves. STR came in for high praise from Santhanam who said, ‘At a time when no one would promote a TV actor to join films, STR gave me a break with Manmadhan. He is my movie godfather and has been promoting me with more roles in other films as well. I am eternally indebted to him".

STR said that despite rising to fame, Santhanam had never refused to give him dates while Shankar praised his punctuality and relaxed working manner.Srinivasan even hoped for a sequel. Others at the well attended event were Rajesh, Udayanidhi Stalin, Kannan, KR, Pannerselvam, Abirami Ramanathan and others.

Balasubramaniam’s camerawork came in for praise from Santhanam. ‘We asked him for cooum shots but he gave us something ressembling the Thames river in London!’ quipped Santhanam. Gautham Menon and STR both have done cameos in the film which is about three lovers wooing the same girl. There are four songs written by Vaali and Vivega.
