Isai’s audio was launched recently by Vijay and Dhanush. The Kaththi actor made time for SJ Surya, and spoke about how the Kushi director gave him a much-needed hit during a bad phase in his career. “My films were flopping till then, but SJ Surya gave me a very big hit. Many directors questioned my decision to make a film with him, as they felt that the project didn’t have a story. I had full faith in Surya though, and told them all that this film didn’t need a story. It needed only SJ Surya. My faith paid off in a big way, and Kushi became a milestone in my career.”
Dhanush also related his Kushi memory for the audience. The Maari actor recounted his experience of watching the film when he was still in school. “I was in the eleventh standard then and really loved the film. It feels great to be sharing stage with the main men of that film.”
SJ Surya’s music for the film was also applauded. “Even the way he speaks is so melodious to hear. So it’s no wonder that he’s done a good job on the soundtrack,” said Dhanush.
Starring SJ Surya and Sathyaraj in lead roles, Isai is about two warring music composers. Savithri debuts as the female lead with this project.
