THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Music Director Ramesh Narayan has said the award he won for the best music director was a reply to actor Prithviraj, allegedly, at whose behest his songs were removed from the film Ennu Ninte Moideen.
“The actor had said the songs I composed for the film were only of academic level. So he suggested the removal of the songs from the film. Now it has been proved that there is God. The award is seen as a reply to Prithviraj who had insulted me,” the director said.
“I came to know about Prithvi’s suggestion from film director R S Vimal. Malayalam films are losing good songs these days due to interferences from actors like Prithviraj.
The actor didn’t like P Jayachandran singing the song, ‘Sharadambaram’. He even asked the director to remove Jayachandran fom rendering that song but my timely intervention aborted that move,” Ramesh Narayan said.
The music director added: “Prithviraj didn’t like all three songs directed by me. He was adamant on changing the studio and removing my songs from the film. The songs were already composed five years ago during the initial phase of the production. All the crew members know about this”.
