He swept us off our feet with Roja and then waltzed into our hearts forever; his recent musical extravaganza Vinnaithaandi Varuvaayaa is the new anthem of love. And now, lyricist Thamarai has revealed the secret behind the success of the ‘Mannipaya’ song from VTV.
“Rahman called me to his studio one day and said he had created a tune which would fit in at a crucial point in the story. He asked me to come up with lyrics where the female lead asks for forgiveness for toying with the hero’s feelings. I was initially hesitant as the scene where the song was to be inserted was one where the female lead chooses the hero over her father. But Rahman assured me that he wanted this to be a surprise for Gautham,” Thamarai revealed to a leading English daily.
“When Gautham heard the song, he too was a little apprehensive. But he went ahead and shot the song suitably and now, it is a rage!” said the hot and happening lyricist.
