Music director Anirudh Ravichander, who has also sung many songs for many heroes, is all set to make his debut in Tollywood, 6 years after debuting in Tamil films as music director with debutant director Aishwarya’s 3 starring Dhanush and Shruti Haasan in lead roles.
After six years in Kollywood and with super-hit films such as Ethir Neechal, Velailla Pattathari and Vedalam, Anirudh has risen to the list of top music directors. He has also had his share of controversies including his much-publicized affair (and lip-lock) with actress-playback singer Andrea Jeremiah and the ‘beep song’ which he and Simbu attempted late last year.
Anirudh’s debut film in Telugu would have Pawan Kalyan in the lead role and would be directed by noted Tollywood film-maker Trivikram. This would be Pawan’s landmark 25th film which would have him romancing the twin beauties of Anu Emmanuel and Keerthy Suresh. The teaser of the film was released yesterday (02nd September) on the eve of Pawal Kalyan’s birthday.
Pencil-thin Anirudh says he agreed to score the film’s music after he felt satisfied with the script. The film is to release in theatres in January next year. It may be recalled that Anirudh was offered the chance to score music to quite a few Telugu films in the past but he couldn’t commit himself to doing so as he was busy with his tour around the globe.
