Karthik and his go-to music director Santhosh Narayanan together have given us many solid numbers through their films like ‘Iraivi’ and ‘Jigarthanda’ to mention a few.

For a change, he signed Anirudh for the film ‘Jagame Thandhiram’ starring Dhanush but Anirudh was later replaced by SANA. His latest film Mahaan starring Vikram and Dhruv Vikram in lead roles also had Anirudh Ravichander initially but was eventually replaced by Santhosh Narayanan for the second time.

Talking about the suddent replacement, the Chakkadu Dorakadu director revealed, “There are no hard feelings. Anirudh was busy with several films and was unable to record Mahaan. I understood his position but was reluctant to speak to Santhosh Narayanan. Santhosh however willingly came on board for me.”

A single track ‘Soorayaatam’ from the movie Mahaan was recently released on the occasion of the young actor’s birthday and was well received by the audience. The team recently wrapped up filming for Mahaan and the movie is currently in the post-production stage.
