Yuvan Shankar Raja will be working with his father, veteran composer Ilaiyaraaja has crooned a surprise track for the film Hero.
Sharing the news, Yuvan took to Twitter and announced, “Guess what??!! There’s a surprise track in #Hero sung by appa. So happy to have recorded this song with appa.@Psmithran @pavijaypoet @Siva_Kartikeyan @kalyanipriyan @kjr_studios”.
The soundtrack of Hero was launched recently and the film marks his second collaboration with Sivakarthikeyan after Kedi Billa Killadi Ranga. During the audio launch, it was revealed that the film will have an 18-minute sequence for which Yuvan has composed a non-stop background score.
“I’ve done many re-recordings, but for the first time, we’ve done this lengthiest piece – 18-minute score. I think it will be the longest score ever. I don’t know if it’s been done before in India, but this is the longest I know of”.
