Ilayaraja recommends Karthik


Karthik, who was at the peak of his singing career, when all his songs became chartbusters, hit a lean patch after his debut film as music director failed to do well at the box-office.

As the film was in the making for more than a couple of years, Karthik couldn’t concentrate on his singing career as well.

Now Maestro Ilayaraja has given Karthik, an opportunity to revive his singing career by giving him a couple of songs in his film Neethanae En Ponvasantham which stars Jiiva and Samantha in lead roles. And Gautham, an avid fan of Ilaiyaraaja, didn’t think twice before bringing Karthik to London to record the songs.

The Isaignani went a step further by recommending Karthik for another of Menon’s untitled ventures which would be directed by Prem Sai, an aide of Menon and the director immediately signed up Karthik as the music director. 

This film is likely to star Jai and Abinaya in lead roles and is expected to go on the floors in Tenkasi in the coming days.
