Shankar’s Ai is AR Rahman’s third film for Vikram. His first film for Vikram was Pudhiya Mannargal and later he composed for Chiyaan in Mani Ratnam’s Raavanan four years back. Rahman did not sing for Vikram in both films, save alone the additional vocals in ‘Veera’ song in Raavanan. But, the film’s climax had a soulful mini-song crooned by AR Rahman titled ‘Naan Varuven’, which was only added in the album’s collector’s edition.
Now, for Shankar directorial AI, AR Rahman has lent his voice for Vikram for a song, which will be the highlight of the film. Vikram has donned different costumes for this special song and delivered a floor-scorching performance, says a source. AI is arguably the most anticipated film of the year.
