Good news for all Rahmaniacs

Maestro AR Rahman earlier made  headlines for his Norway concert and later delighted fans with his Golden Globe Nomination. Fans have been flooded with pleasant surprises as the year is ending on a happy note for Rahman .And here comes another of those surprises as we heard that the Maestro will weave his magic on the precious compositions of Thirukkural consisting of 1330 Kurals written by Thiruvalluvar, which shed a light on the ethics of Dravidian culture and literature.

Out of these 1330 Kurals only selected ones will be worked out by the Maestro and certainly we know he is coming up with something innovative yet exhilarating.

Well great news for all Tamilians who were just wondering if Rahman was lured away by potential Hollywood offers.

Rahman earlier included some lines from the Thirukkural in the outro of the song Mannipaaya in Vinnai Thaandi Varuvaayaa :

anbirkum undo adaikkumthaazh aarvalar
punkaNeer poosal tharum

[Affection cannot be confined by shutters;
Uncontrollable tears will roll down spontaneously when one sees the sufferings of your loved ones]

anbilaar ellaam thamakkuriyar anbudaiyaar
enbum uriyar pirarku

[One who doesn’t love is possessive about everything;
One who loves would even be willing to part their bones]

Check out the video below and listen to that concluding part :
