Vidyasagar’s Son, Harsha Vardhan, To Make Music Composer Debut With Sibi’s Next
Harsha Vardhan, the son of composer Vidyasagar, will compose the music for Sibi Sathyaraj’s 20th film. This project will be led by rookie Pandiyan Adhimoolam. Harsha Vardhan has worked in the music industry as a keyboard programmer for composers including AR Rahman, GV Prakash and Thaman for several years. This will be his first project as a music composer.
Speaking about Harsha, director Pandiyan said, “I heard his songs through a friend of mine and thought they were cool. Later we learned that he was the son of composer Vidyasagar sir. We met him, told the script and Harsha came on board.
While talking about how he got the opportunity to be a songwriter, Harsha said he has been into music since he was a kid. However, Harsha revealed that he did not intend to be a music composer. “This movie has an interesting storyline and a lot of possibilities for background music. While I’ve worked on this genre for other composers, I’m excited to compose music on my own,” the 23-year-old composer said.
Harsha’s father, Vidyasagar, congratulated him on the project and gave him his blessing.
Coming to the film, the action-thriller will see Sibi playing two different roles – one as a comedian and the other a pensive one. The main parts of the film are shot in Trichy and Chennai.
Speaking about the film’s plot, Pandiyan said, “The film is based on a real incident and dives into the story of a father going to extreme lengths to save his daughter.”
Apparently, Praveen Kumar will be the film’s cinematographer, while editing will be handled by Ganesh Shiva. However, the rest of the film’s crew and cast have yet to be revealed.
