S J Suryah gave raise to many an eyebrow when the actor-director announced that he himself would compose the music for his comeback venture Isai? Now he reveals what made him to take the avatar of a music composer.
‘It was A R Rahman who inspired me to become a music composer. He always appreciated my music knowledge and when we were recording for Telugu film Puli, he asked him to become a music composer,’ says Suryah.
Isai is a musical thriller which has newcomer Savithri in the female lead. ‘I auditioned more than 100 aspiring actresses before zeroing in on Savithri. I named her so since she reminded me yesteryear actress Savithri.’
