The movie ‘Nee Thaanae En Pon Vasantham’ pairs up Jiiva and Samantha. Gautam Menon is director for the movie. Audio launch for the movie was held in Nehru Indoor Stadium, Chennai. The audio was released by director K Balachander and actor Suriya received the audio CD.
Suriya spoke on the occasion, excerpts from which are as follows:-
‘Ilayaraja’s music beautifies everybody’s life. His songs center youth, love and beautiful things. From childhood, I have been hearing Ilayaraja’s songs. The songs made me see a beautiful world.’
‘Like mother and father, Ilayaraja’s songs are unchanging. During younger days, I have seen re-recording. I came to know how songs are born. Ilayaraja has given songs which do not exasperate a person even after hearing those songs a number of times’ said Suriya.
As Ilayaraja spoke during the event, he said ‘I am particular that one song does not resemble another. Every song needs to reach the masses. Some directors request a song bearing semblance to another. I do not abide by those directors. I give songs which do not resemble another and give a different output.’
Following address by Suriya and Ilayaraja, songs requested by Balachander, Bharathiraja, Balu Mahendra, R Sundarrajan, RV Udhaykumar, and Suresh Krishna were played on stage.
