Lyricist Vairamuthu has requested all the Tamil movie music directors to hire only singers who can do good justice to Tamil pronunciation. Talking to media after the launch of Ayan movie, starring Surya and Tamanna in lead role, he stressed for the need to have singers who will render a song correctly in Tamil language.
Even if the singer is from a different language, in the previous times the singers like TMS, P. Susheela, Yesudas whose mother tongue is not Tamil, have always done justice to the songs he has written. But he is indeed disappointed with the recent import of singers. He recalled a incident with Udit Narayan rendering one of his songs. The original lyrics of the song was Priyamaana pennai rasikkalam, but Udit has rendered those words as Periyammavin pennai rasikkalam, Thappille!!!
This is a total disaster and he requested music directors to keep such wrong rendering from out of the Tamil music world.
