Music director Deva who is known for his 'gaana' numbers like 'Kavalai Padathey Sagothara' and 'Jingi Naka' was once the man behind dishing out chart busters effortlessly.
His success mantra? Songs with localized themes and catchy lyrics. Sample this; 'vidha vidhama soapu seepu kannadi, en akka mavva vanthu ninna munnadi' tune and lyrics as simple as this was utilized well by the musician.

When he had stopped singing after a certain point of time in his career, it was Anirudh who reignited the magic by roping him to sing a song for Sivakarthikeyan's Maan Karate.
The song, 'open the tasmac' was a huge success and turned out to be a treat for all Deva fans. Now, GV Prakash has brought the veteran on board to sing a 'local number' in Vijay 59.

Deva's voice coupled with Vijay's dance moves? Not a bad combination isn't it? It sure promises to be an ultimate treat for all 'gaana' lovers. Stay tuned for further updates.
