Super star Rajinikanth's movies are known for its entertainment quotient as well as for its introduction songs. Yes, Rajini's intro songs has always been followed with keen interests by his fans and one might even say that the first song of his movie might have an impact in deciding the film's success.
Consider this, Rajinikanth's intro songs are always sung by the
famed singer S.P. Balasubrahmanyam, not only because the song goes
on to become a massive hit but also because there is this strong
belief that when S.P. Balasubrahmanyam lends his voice for Rajini's
first song, then the movie is a sure shot success. Interestingly,
in 2002 when A.R. Rahman scored music for the movie Baba,
the first song was given to Shankar Mahadevan and the movie did not
fare well at the Box-Office as expected.
Likewise, in almost all his movies, Rajinikanth's first songs
are always shot in India. Breaking this stereotype now is director
K.S. Ravikumar, who will be flying along with the actor and other
crew members to locations like Hong Kong, Macau and France to shoot
Rajinikanth's intro song for his upcoming movie
A.R. Rahman is said to have composed a peppy and stylish number and K.S. Ravikumar has planned out an extravagant introduction song for the Thalaivar. Now that the song has been sung by S.P. Balasubrahmanyam, shouldn't it be shot in India as well? Well, it looks like the Padayappa director is all set to prove atleast one of the theories wrong about Rajinikanth's intro songs and let's all hope that he succeeds in doing so, for millions of fans will be disappointed if the jinx is not broken.
