Ace director Shankar was the chief guest for the audio launch event of Sivakarthikeyan and Hansika starrer 'Maan Karate'. Speaking at the event the Enthiran director profusely praised young music composer Anirudh Ravichander who has scored the music for the film.
Calling himself a fan of Anirudh, Shankar recalled how the young composer made us roam with Kolaveri to listen to the super hit 'Kolaveri' song in his debut film 3. He also listed each of the albums Anirudh has worked so far and appreciated them. He cited Krithika Udhanidhi's debut directorial venture Vanakkam Chennai as best album to have come from Anirudh and mentioned 'Osakka Osakka' song from the film as his most favorite. He also revealed that Vanakkam Chennai songs will always be running in his car and his family members and children insist on that.
The acclaimed filmmaker also said he waited for three days to receive an audio copy of Dhanush starrer Velayilla Pattadhari from the audio market and also mentioned a few songs from the album as his favorites.
He also said that the audio of Maan Karate has come out as a Mass album and all the songs will become chartbusters.
Bbeing an influential director cum producer, would Shankar be considering to zero in on Anirudh in any of his upcoming films? Well if something pans out in this regard, the career of the young composer will reach remarkable heights.
