Former Choreographer Pony Prakash Raj who is also the wife of actor Prakash Raj has a sung a song in Vaarayo Vennilave starring Attakathi Dinesh and Haripriya. The music for the film has been composed by Karthik Raja.
Pony is not a professional singer nor she does has been trained to sing. The story behind the way she has been roped in to sing the song makes up an interesting story.
We all know that legendary composer Ilaiyaraja is composing music for Prakash Raj’s directorial Un Samayalarayil. Poney had visited with her husband to the studio where Raja Sir and his son Karthik Raja were composing music for their respective films.
Poney was just humming a song composed by Ilaiyaraja for Un Samaiyalarayil just because she was inspired by it. This caught the attention of the Karthikraja who just passed his father’s composing room for some other reason. Karhik Raja liked Pony’s voice and made her sing a number composed by him for ‘Varaiyo Vennilave’ and recorded it on the same day and at the same venue.
