We are aiming at international standards while still retaining all the elements, especially music that makes Indian cinema work.” Dropping in a pleasant surprise for fans Gautham revealed, “A.R. Rahman has already composed a theme song for the film which is simply outstanding. Photon Kathaas Productions of which I am a part of have found the ideal partners in Eros for a film, which needs to be produced and released on an international scale.” Composer AR Rahman too confirmed the news saying, “This is a completely new direction for both Gautham and me. We hope to come out with a product which is different yet rooted experience for the audiences” The much awaited Vijay-Gautham-Rahman movie will kick of by mid 2012 with a major portion of the shoots to be held in UK.
