Rajinikanth-starrer Kuselan’s audio rights have been lapped up by Anil Ambani’s Big Music for Rs. 2.25 crores! Though several music companies have been vying with each other, Big Music finally emerged the winner in the bidding race. Kuselan’s music director, G.V. Prakash, happens to be the nephew of ace music director A.R. Rahman.
Surprisingly, the price for Kuselan is much higher than Sivaji’s audio rights. It is also worth mentioning here that Sivaji’s music was composed by G.V. Prakash’s uncle A.R. Rahman. The Kuselan album contains five songs for which Daler Mehendi Shankar Mahadevan, Kailash Kher, Shriya Ghosal, Hariharan among others have rendered their voices. The audio release is slated to be held in Chennai on June 30, 2008 by Big Music.
