It was initially expected that Yuvan Shankar Raja would compose music for director Ezhil's comeback venture 'Manamkothi Paravai', which has television star Siva Karthikeyan in the lead. But D Imman is at the helm of affairs now.
Explains Ezhil: "The budget of this film could not afford to have Yuvan as the music composer. So I opted for Imman. He is the best replacement for Yuvan I believe. Imman has done what Yuvan would have for this film."
On the film, he says, "The story is inspired by real life incidents I witnessed in my native place near Nagapattinam. It is a feel good love story, loaded with romance and humour from scene one till the end."
The director of hits like 'Thulladha Manamum Thullum' and 'Poovellam Unvasam' heaps laurels on Siva Karthikeyan. "Having worked with stars like Ajith, Vijay, Jayam Ravi and others, I can say Siva has all the qualities to become a top actor."
