Anirudh records Shreya Ghoshal
His debut as a composer took him to cyclonic heights, whatever then followed is always being compared to a benchmark know world over as Kolaveri Di. For Anirudh Ravichander the response for ‘Why This Kolaveri Di’ was overwhelming.
Yet, that does stop him from making greater promises and striving to live up to his best. He reassured fans that Ethir Neechal will be a bigger hit than his last attempt. Kolaveri has crossed 63 million hits till date and yet you promise more! Wow. Dhanush’ debut production Ethir Neechal features Sivakarthikeyan and Priya Anand in the lead.
Arranged meticulously by the young composer it is a much awaited release of the year. We recently caught a glimpse of the tracks in the album. News is that the track list will include a song by Shreya Ghoshal too. A theme song that will feature as a duet thanks to Mohit Chauhan and Shreya. A lot has been spoken of the Dhanush-Anirudh combination after the Herculean hit Kolaveri. How could he not make Dhanush mama sing? Well Dhanush will take center stage with two songs to his credit. He will be belting it out again for a dance number and a romantic melody.
Moreover, this time around Anirudh will also be taking a shot at singing. Yo Yo Honey Singh and Hip Hop Tamilan Aadhi will jam along for a track titled Ethirneechal Adi. The composer is currently headed to Mumbai for the final session mixing and mastering of the album and to record Shreya’s voice. Wishing him all the best.
