It is without a doubt that Thaman is the most happening music director in Tollywood right now. He has been in stupendous form from the last few years and delivered blockbuster albums. He played a major role in the success of many films like 'Tholi Prema', 'Aravinda Sametha', 'Ala Vaikunthapuramlo' and others.
He is currently working on the music of Pawan Kalyan's 'Ayyappanum Koshiyum' remake and Mahesh Babu's 'Sarkaru Vaari Paata'. This explains his craze right now. Apart from these two star heroes, he is also giving music to many crazy projects and the latest announcement about his next big project has shocked many.
It is known that South India's ace director Shankar has joined hands with Ram Charan for a pan-Indian project. It will be 50th film under Dil Raju's production. After a few issues, Shankar is free to start this project and the top-class filmmaker is currently looking after the pre-production works.
The team recently announced that Thaman has been roped in to score the music for this humongous project. While it is a huge thing for Thaman to make music for a Shankar film, it is to be seen if he reached the standards Shankar is used to or not. Right from the beginning of his career, Shankar always worked with AR Rahman. As we know, Rahman-Shankar delivered some magical albums which are in people's playlists even now. Throughout his career, Shankar moved away from the Oscar-winning composer only twice. Once was for 'Aparichitudu' and the second time for 'Nanban' ('Snehithudu' in Telugu). Harris Jayaraj composed the music on both the occasions.
AR Rahman is in the league of his own and Harris Jayaraj is considered as one of the veteran composers in South India. Shankar has a special relation with AR Rahman and while Thaman is a highly talented composer, people are curious to find out if he manages to satisfy Shankar or not. Only the time will tell!
Interestingly, Thaman played the role of a young drummer in Shankar's 'Boys' which came out in 2003 and he turned out to Shankar's music composer after 18 years.
