It’s his first ever Tamil song and I’m so happy to feature him in this album.

While composing this track I desperately wanted Salim sir to sing it as he has so much emotion, depth and soul in his voice. I instantly spoke to the producer Elred Kumar and he was OK with it . He said songs are the basic invitations to the audience that creates the urge to watch a film, if the songs deserve such talents never hesitate. This motivated me and I sent the song to him via email and he immediately responded by saying the song is beautiful and he would love to record it. Working with him on “Kannamma Reprise” was such a beautiful and inspiring experience. He is such a humble person and his dedication and love towards good music inspires me to work harder” sums up Music Director Leon James.
