Even as GV Prakash is looking forward to the release of Ayngaran which is hitting the screens tomorrow, he is equally excited about the projects for which he is composing music. Recently, the composer-turned-actor was in the news when the Hindi remake of Soorarai Pottru was announced.

The untitled movie produced by Suriya's 2D Entertainment has Akshay Kumar playing the lead while Sudha Kongara has been retained as the director. GV had taken to social media to express that is elated to have come on board for the prestigious remake.

In a chat with Cinema Vikatan, he briefed about the preparations he is undergoing to compose music for the remake. He said, "The songs in Soorarai Pottru and background score had an essence of Madurai lifestyle and culture in it. The challenge in the Hindi remake is to replace it with Marathi culture and lifestyle."

GV added that he has been researching extensively on Lavani music, a popular genre of music in Maharashtra, and that it is fun working on music for the project. "The manner in which I will be incorporating it in the film's score would be interesting," he said.  

Vetri Maaran's Suriya-starrer Vaadi Vaasal is another most-awaited project he currently has in his kitty. According to him, the movie will have a never-before-heard style of music and he has been putting his best foot forward. "The movie involves ample action and drama. I can confidently say that its output with regard to music will be new for music lovers," he informed.

On whether Ayngaran has any message to deliver like a few of his films, GV said that films that have messages infused in screenplay just for the sake of it are being criticized as 'cringe-fest' by audiences. "What matters is coming up with unique messages and presenting them in an engaging manner," he added.
