Thambi Ramaiah, known for his acting prowess, will be seen flaunting his singing skills in his upcoming movie, which is titled Asurakulam.
Speaking to Times of India, the film's music director C Sathya has said, "I worked with Ramaiah sir in 'Nedunchalai'. Once, he casually sang a song during a jamming session, too. And he was absolutely good. In this album, there is a song that required a raw voice.
I remembered Ramaiah sir's flawless rendition and made him record this one. This is the first time I am making an actor sing, and I must say that he has sung really well."
Ramaiah has said he is a huge fan of TM Soundarajan, MS Vishwanathan and Kannadasan.
"Their songs touch the listeners' hearts and I've always enjoyed singing their songs. But I could never learn singing professionally. Sathya heard my voice when we were recording for 'Nedunchalai' and asked me to record this one.
This song is inspired by MSV's Veedu Varai Uravu, Yugabharathi took the essence from the classic and wrote a song that would suit today's times. This number is meaningful and I enjoyed recording it," the Kumki actor told the leading daily.
