Vikram croons for Arya’s film Madharasapattinam in five different voices


Vikram is at it again. The Cheeyan, who made a mark as a singer in his  films like ‘Gemini’,‘Kanthaswamy’…, has also sang for the period film ‘Madharasapattinam’, which has Arya in the lead role.

The highlight of the song composed by G V Prakash is that Vikram has sung in five different voices like a teacher, a dhobi, an old man, a youngster and a vendor. Interestingly, it was Vijay, the director of the film, who suggested Vikram’s name to Prakash.

“The song ‘Meghame Oh Meghame….’ is going to rock the charts. Initially, the team thought of using Vikram’s voice only for Arya’s scenes in the song. “But once Vikram saw the visuals, he decided to sing the full song,” G.V. Prakash told to a leading English daily. “He surprised us by performing his part in the recording studio. We were all awestruck by how he changed his voice to suit the character that he was crooning for. I’m sure that this will turn out to be the highlight of the album releasing later this month,” he added.

He adds: “Vikram is a true professional. We learnt that he did a lot of homework before coming to studio for recording. And this made him to sing the song without any hiccups. I am looking forward to work with him again.”
