Bhavatharini sings for Harris Jayaraj tunes; First time for non-family musician
In an interesting development, singer Bhavatharini, daughter of Ilaiyaraaja, has recently sung a song for music director Harris Jayaraj. ...
Popular play-back singer Bhavatharini who received a National award for her song 'Mayil Pola ponnu onnu' in the film Baharathi, has been lending her voice for the songs composed by her father Ilaiyaraja and brother Karthik Raja and Yuvan Shankar Raja.
Now for the first time she has sung for a music composer out of her family. Bhavatharini will be singing a song composed by leading composer Harris Jayaraj. The song has been written by ace lyricist Vairamuthu for 'Anegan' the film that has Dhanush and Amyra Dastur in the lead roles.
The film's director K.V.Anand has confirmed the news in a recent interview saying, "It is true. Bhavatharini has sung for the first time in Harris's music. The song is a folk number and begins with the phrase, 'Athaadi Athaadi'. I thought the song would sound great in her voice and suggested her name. We requested her and Bhavatharini agreed." Anand has expressed satisfaction that the song has come out as good as he expected it to be.
Last year, Ilaiyaraja's son Yuvan Shankar Raja sung a song composed by A.R.Rahman for the Dhanush starrer 'Maryan'.
Bhavatharini sings Vairamuthu’s lines
The song has been penned by Vairamuthu who has not worked with Ilaiyaraja ever since their unfortunate split. Even though Ilaiyaraja has been firm in his stance, it is indeed a welcome development to see Bhavatharini singing for Vairamuthu’s lyrics.
