Devi Sri Prasad, fondly being called DSP, has been the music director of all films made by ‘Jayam’ Raja and starring his brother ‘Jayam’ Ravi in the lead.
Most of Raja’s films have been remakes of popular Telugu hit films to which Prasad had scored music and it was felt that it would be easy for him to make the necessary ‘voice track’ adjustments in the Tamil version as well.
The trend, though, has now changed as ‘Jayam’ Raja is all set to direct Vijay in his upcoming film ‘Velayudham’, to be produced by Ascar Ravichandran. This would be also might not be a direct film and as such, Vijay Antony has stepped in as the music director, replacing Raja’s preferred choice of Prasad.
Vijay’s indulgence in all aspects of film-making in his films is also cited as the reason for the replacement of Prasad by Antony. Vijay is said to be mighty impressed by the ‘Puli Varugudhu…’ number composed by Vijay Anthony and has told Raja to make Vijay Antony as the music director for his upcoming film as well.
