Actor Dhanush proved his crooning prowess by singing the hit song ‘Ummela Aasaidhaan…’ in the film Aayirathil Oruvan in G.V Prakash Kumar’s music. The song, which also had Andrea Jermaiah’s voice too, was one of the features of the extravagant film attempted by Selvaraghavan, Dhanush’s elder brother. Now, the actor has revealed another facet of his personality.
Fresh from winning the national award for ‘best actor’ for his mind-blowing performance in Vetrimaran’s ‘Aadukalam’, Dhanush plays the lead in Selvaa’s upcoming film ‘Irandaam Ulagam’. Of the six songs in the film, Dhanush has reportedly penned a couple of songs while Selvaa has written the other two songs. Dhanush has also sung a song in the film, it is reported.
By doing so, Dhanush joins the elite list of actors which has Kamal Hassan and Simbu who have penned lyrics in films besides singing them. Incidentally, G.V Prakash Kumar has scored the music of ‘Irandaam…’ too. Talking about the songs, GVP says that Dhanush has penned a folk song and a romantic song and adds that both of them have come out ‘really’ well.
GVP says that not many people, including those close to Dhanush, are aware that the actor is actually a good writer too. “Selva has only utilized Dhanush’s writing in the form of lyrics. Dhanush, Selvaa and I share a warm, cordial relationship and as such, the composing and recording of all the songs in the film went off well as we had a blast,” concludes GVP, niece of music wizard A.R Rahman.
