Successful combo Gautham Menon and Harris Jayaraj, who parted ways
due to some differences a few years ago, seem to have buried the
hatchet. Well, the musician is likely to replace AR Rahman, who has
reportedly walked out of Neethaane En Ponvasantham
(NEP) due to his busy schedule, in the multilingual movie.
Rumour mills have it that AR Rahman's prior commitments to his
other Hindi projects have made him to opt out of NEP. This
has lead Gautham Menon to find a good replacement for the Oscar
Award winner and he is keen to rope in his trusted music director
Harris Jayaraj. But it is not sure whether they have sealed the
Gautham Menon and Harris Jayaraj, who had delivered some
superhit musical pieces like Minnale, Kaakha Kaakha, Vaaranam
Aayiram, etc., separated in a dignified manner in 2008.
NEP stars Jeeva in the Tamil version, Nani in Telugu,
whereas Aditya Roy Kapoor in the Hindi version. Samantha is playing
the female lead in all three instalments.
