Ilayathalapathy Vijay went through a rough patch with music director Vidyasagar for the movie Kaavalan recently. The situation arose when it was decided that a melody song would be composed for the movie. Director Siddique had made plans to incorporate the melody track prior to the climax.
On the contrary, Vijay suggested a Kuthu song was what his fans needed instead of a melody track as he felt it would only result in empty seats with Vijay aficionados heading out for a joint of smoke.
But finally it was a “lose-lose” situation rather than any one winning as the editor declared there was no need of a song for the particular sequence.
Let’s hope the movie turns out to be a winner providing a much needed break for our Vijay.
