Now, music director Yuvan Shankar Raja has spilled the beans on the delay.
The ace musician claims that a tune composed by him earlier was not liked by the makers of the film, which delayed the the audio launch. Explaining this to his fans on Twitter, he said ,“The reason for the delay in Mangaatha audio is we had to scrap 1 tune n record a fresh. I wasn't happy with the old tune for but now da new 1 sounds much better...."
