Director Mysskin reveals the story behind Vijay's All Thotta Boopathi

Mysskin in a recent event shared a few anecdotes on his way to becoming a director. He had worked earlier with director Vincent Selva in the Vijay starrer Youth.


While recalling an incident during the making of the popular song All Thotta Boopathi, the Anjadhey maker says, “Director Vincent Selva had given me a lot of freedom. We gave the popular number All Thotta Boopathi first to Vaali sir to pen the lines and also Rs one lakh. Mani Sharma was composing the tune and Shankar Mahadevan was to sing.


I very sincerely went to Selva sir and told that my friend Kabilan had written a song and this could be used for the specific track. Everybody felt odd to change the lyricist at that point. But my gut feeling told me that Kabilan’s lyrics would become a hit.


Mani Sharma does not know Tamil and I was the one who was teaching Shankar Mahadevan the lines. So I silently replaced the lyrics sheet and it was Kabilan’s words that were sung by the singer. Later when people came to know, they were angry but my director supported me”.


Interesting indeed!
