Rahman – "The intro songs that I wrote for Rajini"
By Behindwoods News Bureau.
February 10, 2007

The much awaited mega movie of the year Sivaji is being packaged with all necessary ingredients to enthrall the Rajini fans. Looks like the Rajini magic has done its effect on Rahman as well. Talking to news sources on his music in Sivaji, Rahman let out that he was always spellbound with Rajini's style.

There was no plan earlier for an introductory song in Sivaji. However it was later decided to have one and when Shankar approached me for the same I put the best of my efforts, Rahman answered for a question. "The song has come out really well. Shankar showed me a few rushes and there is now one more reason for me to be a Rajini fan", adds the Mozart. He further assured that Sivaji's music would outperform Baba.

On talking about intro songs for the Superstar,"Rajini's introduction songs are always a challenge. I enjoyed doing Oruvan Oruvan Mudhalali in Muthu. That had a bit of philosophical touch to it. Singa nadai pottu from Padayappa was created based on folk tunes, whereas Vettri kodi kattu from the same movie had fast beats and trumpet just to bring out the speed with which the protagonist grows in his life. Working for Padayappa was definitely a great experience. Rajinikanth is very clear about the music that his fans expect from him movies".

On few of the missed ones, "Mudhalvane song from Mudhalvan was written with Rajini in mind. For some reason Rajinikanth didn't act in the movie. One more introductory song was composed when Jaggubhai was announced. However, the project was shelved later and I used the song for S.J.Surya's Anbe Aruyire."

Sivaji's shoot schedules are nearing completion and the movie is slated for a late April 2007 release. The audio is expected to be released by mid March.
