Tewnty one-year old G V Prakash could not have asked for more! At such a young age, he got a chance to compose music for the superstar of Tamil cinema, Rajnikanth.
The icing on the cake was the presence of his illustrious uncle, A R Rahman at the Tamil as well as Telugu films' (Kadhanayakudu) audio launch on Monday.
Prakash also got country's best singers -- Shankar Mahadevan, Chitra and Sadhana Sargam -- to sing for him. What many don't know is that Daler Mehndi has sung the title song -- his first for a Tamil film.
It is interesting to note that Big Music bought the audio rights of Kuselan for a whopping Rs 2.2 crore, the highest for a Tamil album. The previous highest was for Rahman's Sivaji, again a Rajnikanth film.
