In a press meet held after the formal launch of AVM's forthcoming film, Vairamuthu said, "Nowadays, most of the singers from outside the state couldn't pronounce the Tamil words properly. But I never oppose the inflow of other language singers into Tamil Cinema. In the past legendary singer TMS proved a lot with his perfect pronunciation, even he is a non-Tamilian. P Suseela's mother tongue is Telugu. But her pronunciation is far better than a typical Tamilian. Only once I did corrected KJ Yesudass during a song recording. After that there was no need for any such correction during his renditions"
He said further, "But take the case of Udith Naarayanan. Once he rendered a song under Deva's music and pronounced my lyric wrongly. Originally, I wrote as Priyamaana pennai rasikkalam, but this guy has rendered those words as Periyammavin pennai rasikkalam, Thappille I was really shocked to hear. Here, his wrong pronunciation caused for a cultural disaster. That is why I'm always compelling the singers for right pronunciation. Upto few years back, the lyricist who wrote the song has taught the singers how to pronounce the words before the recording starts. Unfortunately, no musicians has followed this good trend nowadays. Film music is a joint effort. Every one involves in this profession must try to save the language. Otherwise don't encourage the non-Tamil singers, who have adamantly refused to learn the language"
