A R Rahman’s love for Tamil is known to the world., it might be when the Mozart of Chennai uttered a few words from the classical divine language at the Oscar stage or when the master included a tamil song Kurukuru Kan written by A. R. Rahman himself in hollywood flick Couples Retreat.
And now, the music maestro, who had been entrusted with the task of composing a theme song for the World Classical Tamil Conference by Chief Minister M Karunanidhi, has completed composing a rough cut of the anthem.
Penned by Kalaignar Karunanidhi himself, the song has come out extraordinarily well, it is said. If reports are to be believed, the track was recently played to Karunanidhi. Rajya Sabha member Kanimozhi and Kavignar Vairamuthu too were reportedly present.
“This song will be to Tamil Nadu and Tamilians what Vande Mataram is to India. It is outstanding,” Vairamuthu has said. The song starts with the line “Pirappokkum Ella Uyirkkum” (All are equal at birth), which is also the theme of the conference.
