Simbu's brother rakes in Rs 1.5 cr in music debut

Tamil actor Silambarasan's younger brother TR Kuralarasan made his debut as music composer in the family's home production Idhu Namma Aalu. The film's audio rights have been picked up by Bengaluru-based Lahari Audio for Rs1.5 crore, the biggest for a debut composer, sources say. The film also marks Lahari's return to the Tamil market. The film is produced by T Rajendar, the father of Silambarasan and Kuralarasan. The film stars Silambarasan and Nayantara.The film was launched in 2013 but was delayed for various reasons. 

Tulsiram Naidu (Velu) of Lahari Music said, “We are re-entering the Tamil industry formally with this film.We re-entered the Telugu industry a few years ago and the situation is good.Our company will have a presence in Kannada, Telugu and Tamil. This film is the home production for Simbu and his brother has composed the music for the first time. So there was huge curiosity about it.The composer has put in all his effort and done a very good job on his very first film.“ Composer Kuralarasan and director Pandiraj got into a war of words in early 2015 over which of the two was causing the film's delay.The teaser of the film was delayed according to Pandiraj because Kuralarasan did not provide the music in time. But despite all the trouble, Kuralarasan's debut is proving to be good for the family's fortunes. The film also faced other troubles when the producer complained against Nayanatara for not participating in a song sequence. It was the director Pandiraj who defended her.Overcoming these obstacles, the film is set for release in February.
