Karthik Dial Seytha Yenn: AR Rahman to compose for Trisha-Simbu's lockdown short film

The nationwide lockdown imposed to curb the spread of the novel coronavirus has brought the film industry to a halt. However, many directors and writers are using this time to pen scripts and come up with short films. Filmmaker Gautham Menon is working on a short film titled Karthik Dial Seytha Yenn during the lockdown.

Starring Trisha and Simbu, the short film is a continuation to the trio's 2010 hit film, Vinnaithaandi Varuvaya. The latest addition to the team is composer AR Rahman. The Academy Award-winning music director has been roped in to compose the tunes for the short film.

Trisha, who plays the lead role in Karthik Dial Seytha Yenn, took to Instagram to confirm the same and express her happiness. She shared the news with the caption, "Yay (sic)."

Recently, the makers of the short film released the teaser, which caught the attention of the netizens. In the teaser, Trisha's character can be seen motivating Simbu's Karthik, asking him to work on his upcoming film or web series.

In Vinnaithaandi Varuvaya, Simbu essays the role of a filmmaker. Trisha, in the teaser, said, "Write. There's so much beauty in your writing. But, don't force it. You're an artist and it will naturally come to you. The theatres will be opened soon. People from Netflix and Amazon would approach you. They just want pure good content. Everything will be alright."

Trisha and Simbu shot for their portions at their respective homes in Chennai. The makers are yet to announce the release date of the short film.
