Kamal Haasan, while promoting Vikram, had confirmed that he was working on a script that would be directed by Malayalam filmmaker Mahesh Narayanan. Now, we hear that Sushin Shyam will compose music for this untitled project. If this turns out to be true, this one will mark the Tamil debut of the young Malayalam music director, who has worked on critically-acclaimed films including Kumbalangi Nights, Virus, Trance, Malik, Minnal Murali, and so on.

Mahesh Narayanan, known for Take Off and C U Soon, served as an editor for Viswaroopam and its 2018 sequel, both directed by Kamal Haasan. This yet-to-be-titled film, produced by Kamal Haasan, will mark the debut of Mahesh in Tamil cinema. According to confirmed reports, this project will go on the floors by the end of July.

Mahesh Narayanan's next release will be Malayankunju featuring Fahadh Faasil. He has completed the shoot of Ariyippu with Kunchacko Boban, too. The director is simultaneously gearing up for his Bollywood debut Phantom Hospital, as well.

Sushin Shyam discovered that he wanted his life to revolve around music at a tender age. For as long as he could remember, music was part of his life. Sushin’s dad was a musician and a member of a band. So, naturally, he started learning the piano at the age of four.

Speaking about his favourite among his compositions, Sushin said, in a conversation, that he was attached to the tunes of Kumbalangi Nights. “I had gone to the location and the mood of the songs could have been generated from my feeling about the place. When I went to Venice, I found the land and the culture pretty similar to Kumbalangi. That is why I added a tinge of Italian flavour while composing the music for the film,” he added.

In this era where there’s stiff competition in film music, Sushin is confident of the value he brings to the table as a music composer. “Each musician has his or her style. I feel one has to be true to oneself and one’s music and you will be fine. Listeners want honest music, one that comes from the heart.”
