While the Vijay-Mohanlal movie is set to serve as a Pongal treat, Jilla’s music would keep the spirit alive this christmas. Releasing on December 21, the album will have eight tracks including five songs, two karaoke and one theme song, revealed music composer Imman on Twitter.
A one-line tweet from him-- ‘#Jilla audio from 21st december by star music #imman Praise God!’ -- on Thursday night, is all it took for fans to go on a retweeting spree, with the status fetching 200-plus RTs in no time.
This says much about the anticipation of fans for the Vijay Mohanlal starrer, which also has the Ilayathalapathy crooning for a melodious number along with Shreya Ghoshal. Whether it would race up the charts like Vijay’s previous musical venture - Google Google — is for us to wait and watch. To add to the anticipation, news from the sets is that the climax of Jilla with Vijay and Mohanlal fighting 40 stuntmen, was shot on a 40 acre field near Hyderabad, with a set costing `1 crore.
Meanwhile, furthering the fans’ insatiable curiosity is the dance number, which would see Vijay and Mohanlal reflecting their chemistry on screen. Sung by S P Balasubrahmanyam and Shankar Mahadevan, it is said to be the first song. Directed by T Naesan, the film also stars Kajal Agarwal.
