Handless Collections’ Vaathi Coming Cover Is Viral; Vijay To Meet Performer Tansen Post-lockdown

Vijay At The 'Master' Audio Launch

Actor-director-choreographer Raghava Lawrence put out a tweet a few days ago  requesting composer Anirudh Ravichander and actor Vijay to watch a young man perform the recent hit song ‘Vaathi Coming’ from Master


While fans had already viralised the video, bringing it to the attention of the composer before Lawrence’s tweet, the Master star, who is not very active on social media, was informed of the same through a phone call from the Kanchana star.

On Sunday, Raghava Lawrence put out another tweet thanking the actor and composer for agreeing to help Tansen, a young musician with disabilities. The actor has reportedly asked Lawrence to bring Tansen and is keen on watching him perform. Anirudh too has reportedly expressed interest in having Tansen perform in one of his musicals.

Tansen, who has essayed a small role in Kanchana, has had a long-time dream to perform in Anirudh Ravichander’s music crew.

Here’s the performance by Tansen:

Meanwhile, Raghava Lawrence, who was working on Akshay Kumar starrer Laxmmi Bomb before the lockdown, has been collecting donations in kind for an initiative by his Thai Foundation to support people in crisis due to the lockdown. Several celebrities including actor-director R Parthiepan, director Vijay Milton, and producer Five Star Kathiresan have been contributing rice and groceries.

Vijay starrer Master’s post-production activities are complete and the film will release once the lockdown ends. The Lokesh Kanakaraj film also stars Malavika Mohanan, Vijay Sethupathi, Andrea Jeremiah, Shanthnu Bhagyaraj, and Arjun Das and was shot in a span of 129 days.

With Anirudh on music, Sathyan Sooryan on camera, Sathees Kumar on art, and Philomin Raj on edit, the film is one of the most expected releases of 2020. It was earlier supposed to hit the screens on April 9, 2020 but was postponed because of the lockdown.
