Almost 25 years after their first, path-breaking collaboration in the movie "Roja", director Mani Ratnam and music director A.R. Rahman took the stage once again on Monday to release the music of their upcoming film "Kaatru Veliyidai".

Talking about the film, Karthi said he never thought he would act in a film like Kaatru Veliyidai. The film is being produced, written and directed by Mani Ratnam. But, initially, I found it hard to understand the fighter pilot character. So I took basic flying lessons and spent some time with real fighter pilots, which increased my respect by manifolds for them. "I feel very, very honoured to be playing a fighter pilot", Karthi said. "The filming of this movie took us to places in Kashmir and Ladakh and we got to observe our armed forces posted there". We used to pass by the Indian soldiers daily. When I learnt about this project, I wanted to lend my support.

Bollywood actor Aditi Rao Hydari is returning to Tamil cinema with Kaatru Veliyidai, after a decade.

Three songs from the album have already been released and the rest will be out on the audio launch ceremony of the film. "And Mani sir because of you, I will see many more dreams", Aditi said at the event. He producing the film under his banner A. Sreekar Prasad Madras Talkies.

Kaatru Veliyidai is an intense love story set in the backdrop of the Indian Air Force. We will be waiting for Mani Ratnam's movie, but even we will be waiting for A.R. Rahman's music.
