The Telugu popular classic, Sankarabharanam, will be dubbed in Tamil 36 years after its original release. Producers Rathnam, PS Harihaan and TP Senthamarai Kannan will be re-releasing the movie under TN Arts and Sri Saba Girivaasan Movies. The film features 12 songs and all of them have been reprised by singers who had lent their voices for the original. While recording the songs, SP Balasubrahmanyam was reportedly so moved by the music that he shed tears. DTS re-recording is also being carried out; and the movie’s audio will be released soon.
Sankarabharanam, directed by K Vishwananth, hit theatres in 1978. It was well-received in Tamil Nadu, and was a blockbuster in Andhra Pradesh. JV Somayajulu donned the lead role while SP Balasubrahmanyam, Vani Jayaram, KV Mahadevan (composer) and K Viswanath (director) bagged National Awards. Balu Mahendra was in charge of cinematography.
