Three national award winner Vani Jairam has crooned for AR Rahman after a long gap of two decades. “Idhu Sugam Sugam” from Vandicholai Chinraasu is the only song she has sung for ARR. When presenting the lifetime achievement Filmfare award last year to Vani Jairam, AR Rahman repented that he has not worked with the veteran singer much.
Vani Jairam has confirmed in an interview that she has indeed recorded a song for Rahman in Kaaviya Thalaivan. It is directed by Vasantha Balan and has Siddharth, Vedhika, Prithviraj and Anaika Soti in important roles.
