And, it is official! GV Prakash Kumar will be composing the tunes for Vikram's period film, 'Karikalan'. While a number of names right from Yuvan Shankar Raja, Vijay Antony to Harris Jayaraj were rumoured to be music composers for this film, it is now official that GV Prakash will compose the tunes.
In fact, a leading daily has reported that GV Prakash has 'silently' begun working on the tunes of this film.
The movie will throw light on Karikalacholan, the man who built the first dam against all odds in India. The music will be composed with instruments which were used back then, which is quite a challenging affair by itself.
'Karikalan' directed by LI Kannan will be produced under the banner of Silver Line Films, N Karthik will handle the cinematography whilst TS Suresh is the editor. Vikram will woo three damsels in this project, Zarine Khan, Mithra Kurian and Radhika Apte.
It may be mentioned that GV Prakash is also composing the music of the Vikram - AL Vijay project.
