The news has been confirmed by Anirudh Ravichander on Twitter. The music director wrote on the social networking website that he had fun crooning the number. He also thanked director Shankar and AR Rahman for giving an opportunity to work with them.
"Had great fun singing a song for 'Ai'.. Thanks to @shankarshanmugh sir and @arrahman sir :) Love, Anirudh," the musician wrote on the Twitter. Sources say that it is a lively number and Shankar specifically wanted Anirudh Ravichander's voice for the track.
We have to note that a few months ago at the audio launch function of Maan Karate director Shankar had praised Anirudh Ravichander for his music works. Indeed, the director had went on to say that he was a big fan of the youth sensation.
This statement had paved way for the rumours of Shankar teaming up with Anirudh. Now, those speculations have turned true.
