The news of Jiiva and Samantha singing for Neethane En Ponvasantham has been spreading like wild fire in many websites. While we had reported about popular vocalist Karthik crooning for NEP, Jiiva and Samantha’s presence was yet to be ascertained. As our sources enquired into the matter, both actors made things clear, divulging the news themselves.
“Guys I am sorry. I wish it was true and that I had a hidden talent I was gonna surprise you all with. But no I am not singing in Gautham sir’s film” said Samantha, heroine of NEP . Actor Jiiva was the first to clarify things as he quipped, “That’s not true. Don’t know about Sam but I dint sing any songs.” The film is a special one for Director Gautham Menon who accompanied NEP composer Ilayaraja, recording the orchestaral arrangements for the movie in London. It’s the very first time that Gautham and Ilayaraja are coming together and that too for a romantic offering. Singer Karthik did confirm singing his part in the film saying, “It was a great experience to have both Ilayaraja sir and Gautham sir together. For Neethane En Ponvasantham I have sung 3 songs in Tamil and 3 songs for the Telugu version. All in all six songs, composed by Ilayaraja sir.” Now you got our word people, neither Sam nor Jiiva will be singing for NEP.
