3. Harris Jayaraj

With two strikingly different releases in the form of Irandam Ulagam and Endrendrum Punnagai in 2013, Harris Jayaraj proved that he’s still got plenty of hits up his sleeve and that new collaborations could derive a musical edge while retaining the classic Harris charm. He continues to enjoy loyal fan base and his music adds to the trade of the movies he signs up.
