Yuvan Shankar Raja has been replaced by newcomers to compose the music for forthcoming movie Vadacurry. The music director's busy schedules has forced him to opt out of the project. Producer Dhayanidhi Alagiri wrote a letter to the media to announce the news.
Find the below letter written by Dhayanidhi Alagiri.
I would like to inform you that due to Yuvan Shankar Raja's hectic schedule towards the end of last year, we were unable to work along with him for the above mentioned movie, although he has delivered us an absolute mesmerising melody for the same. We are using that track for the said film. Both of us agreed mutually and felt it was best if we work with another music director for the quick completion of the movie.
So at a time when we were looking at going with some other big names in the business Anirudh Ravichander had informed us that one of his friends who is also his sound engineer was really good at music composing and that we should give him a shot and I would like to use this opportunity to thank Anirudh for introducing us to Vivek Siva.
Vivek works along with Mervin Solomon, they are a duo. They both have scored 4 (four) tracks for Vadacurry and will be scoring the BGM too. The whole album as such has turned out to be a stunning ensemble of different genre of music. They have proved that they are definitely a talent to watch out for. I am personally in love with all the track's. I hope you would enjoy them as much as I did. The music album should be out very soon. I would be making a separate announcement for the same.
Below I am mentioning a brief profile of both Vivek and Mervin.
Vivek Siva ,22, is trained in classical music. Learnt the carnatic mandolin and performed with numerous bands in school (PSBB KK NGR) and college.
