Come October 10, the music of STR’s much awaited Poda Podi will be launched. A single number from the movie is already making waves on FM channels, it may be noted.
Directed by Vignesh Shiva, the movie which has STR and Varlaxmi in lead roles has music by Dharan Kumar. Interestingly, the music composer is celebrating his birthday today.
Dharan rose to fame with Parijatham, featuring the hit single Unnai Kandene, which marked his debut as a film score composer.
Dharan used to participate in music programs in the college, director K Bhagyaraj’s daughter Saranya studied in. For her debut venture, Parijatham, directed by her father, Saranya recommended Dharan as the film composer, by which he happened to enter the Tamil film industry.
The album became a chartbuster, with the song Unnai Kandaene being listed among the top ten songs of the year and earning him a name in the industry.
