Vairamuthu remembers Balachander
'At this time I thank great director Balachander for bringing me, Mani Ratanm and AR Rahman together. And I thank all the Tamil speaking fans for tolerating us for more than 25 years and encouraging us to continue doing our work together,' Vairamuthu says at the audio launch Chekka Chivantha Vaanam.
AR Rahman is Mani Ratnam's best creation, says Vairamuthu
"People accuse AR Rahman of not appreciating me in public a lot. But I know the respect he has for me in his heart. Mani Ratanm has created a lot of memorable films out of his production house Madras Talkies but to date his best creation is AR Rahman, which was created in Kavithalaya (producers of Roja)," Vairamuthu says at the audio launch Chekka Chivantha Vaanam.
