While the makers of Bairavaa are yet to sell the audio rights of the film, there’s heavy competition to bag them. Sources said, “Think Music and Times Music South are among a few big labels who are in the race. It looks like Sun TV might get both the audio, and satellite rights. However, nothing has been finalised. But, if it goes thorugh, it would heavily disappoint the leading music label companies.” With five songs in the album, aiming to cater both the class and mass audience, the audio will be out next month.
“Thanks to the changing economics and business trends, it’s difficult for the audio companies to bag the rights as producers try to convince TV channels to buy the films even before the release. Since Santhosh Narayanan has composed music, demand is high,” observed a source.
Meanwhile, the shooting of Bairavaa is almost over. The movie, launched in April, is currently in the post production stage, with the crew busy with the re-recording and dubbing. Directed by Bharathan, who is collaborating with Vijay for the second time after Azhagiya Tamil Magan (2007), Bairavaa is bankrolled by Vijaya Productions and Sri Green Productions has acquired the entire Tamil Nadu rights. Keerthy Suresh plays Vijay’s love interest. Aparna Vinod, Jagapathi babu and others, will be seen in important roles.
