Thiagarajan’s Son Prashanth to Step into Ayushmann Khurrana’s Shoes.
Santhosh Narayanan is known for his works in the Tamil industry. It was in 2012 when he had made his debut as a composer with the film Attakathi. He has composed music for Jigarthanda, Iruthi Suttru, Vada Chennai, among others. Thiagarajan, who is bankrolling the Tamil remake told TOI, “Amit Trivedi had done a fabulous job and broke conventional patterns in the film. I could only think of Santhosh who could work here on different genres. He only records using symphony and orchestra.” He also stated, “We’ve signed him for the film and he has gracefully accepted the challenge.”
