Answering to the question, Yuvan said that he was supposed to compose music for “Aayirathil Oruvan”. “Actually it was a tune composed for “Aayirathil Oruvan”. But I didn’t do the project. So I gave that tune to Vishnu Varthan not to waste it. He shot it for “Sarvam”. Later on Selva called me and asked whether I didn’t know he was going to use it. I said I gave it to Vishnu” said Yuvan in the interaction.
“To match the visuals he shot for “Aayirathil Oruvan”, Selva did another tune similar to it” he revealed.
