According to the close source of Madras Talkies, the Tamil Raavanan audio launch will take place a few days after the Hindi Raavan audio launch which will be on April 24. It will be a red carpet event as Chennai is the home town of director Mani Ratnam, composer of the film AR Rahman and hero Vikram. All of them will take part in the event, details are being worked out as the launch will happen on or before May 2nd.
The music of Raavan is composed by Academy Awards winner AR Rahman. Sony Music had lost out the Hindi audio of the film to T-Series, so they were determined to grab the Tamil and Telugu rights of the film.
