Gautam Vasudev Menon's epic Vaaranam Aayiram garnered wonderful reviews, and decent business at the box office. Though he began working on the long pending Chennayil Oru Mazha Kalam soon after, he has left it again and started work on a quickie, a love story with Silambarasan and Trisha in the lead.
The film is interestingly titled Vinnaithandi Varuvaya [Will you leap the skies and come to me?]. In fact, it is a line from a song in Rajeev Menon's Minsara Kanavu [Sapnay in Hindi starring Kajol, Arvind Swamy and Prabhu Deva].
But the most interesting aspect of the film is that its music is composed by double Oscar winner A R Rahman.
In between shooting of the film, the director talks exclusively to Shobha Warrier about it.
Did you come across the title Vinnaithandi Varuvaya on the spur of a moment or did you have to think a lot about it?
I have taken the words Vinnaithandi Varuvaya from the song in Minsara Kanavu. No, I did not have to think a lot; it just came on the spur of the moment.
Listen: Groove to Jai Ho!
