Cheliyaa Movie Audio Release

The audio launch of the movie is scheduled for March 20, 2017.

It is the romantic thriller which is written, directed and produced by Mani Ratnam himself.

For Karthi, his professional journey has come full circle after playing the lead role in director Mani Ratnam's upcoming film Kaatru Veliyidai.

Almost 25 years after their first, path-breaking collaboration in the movie "Roja", director Mani Ratnam and music director A.R. Rahman took the stage once again on Monday to release the music of their upcoming film "Kaatru Veliyidai". The Fitoor actress plays a doctor while Karthi stars as a fighter pilot. After reading the script, I asked him whether he was sure about casting me as the lead. I lost weight and shaved off my moustache in preparation for the role. "I would like to extend gratitude to all of them through this film", he said.

Ratnam also suggested that this film is sort of a tribute to the Indian armed forces and the sacrifices our soldiers make to keep our borders safe. When I learnt about this project, I wanted to lend my support. The film's posters and promo videos have already left an impression with the audience even before its release.

Mani Ratnam and A R Rahman's magic still resonates in the songs of films like Roja, Bombay, Iruvar, Dil Se.

Talking at the event, Varthaman said: "I have always felt that the story about the Indian Air Force was missing on celluloid". Versatile musician and Academy Award victor A. R. Rahman has composed the score of the film.
