Mani Ratnam's speech at Kaatru Veliyidai audio launch

The audio of Kaatru Veliyidai was launched today, 20th March at Sathyam Cinemas, Chennai. Mani Ratnam who generally does not talk much and let his work speak had few nice words to share about AR Rahman. 

“A journey of 25 years with AR Rahman! It is like I met him yesterday. He had the same smile, even back then. To him, every film is a separate journey. He goes on search for a new path for every single film of his. Every time he treats a film like his first film. Sometimes he does not give what you want. We ask him to compose a song for Bombay but when I go, he gives me a theme track. I used to say-What sir, I need a song for tomorrow’s shooting and you give a theme? But once you listen to the theme, you forget everything else. I have to thank both AR Rahman and Vairamuthu for putting up with me for the past 25 years; please bear with me for a few more years. In the presence of all, I am asking them when can we sit for the composing of our next film?  An amazing journey from Roja to Kaatru Veliyidai.

Kaatru Veliyidai is a love story told at the backdrop of Indian Air Force. We used to meet many Army Jawans and Military Officers during the shooting and feel amazed to see so many people working tirelessly to protect us.”
