Rajiv Menon to direct Chennai Super Kings' Anthem

Rajiv Menon to direct Chennai Super Kings' Anthem/Music Video If this source is to be believed, Ace cinematographer-cum-film maker Rajiv Menon is going to direct the music video/anthem for Chennai Super Kings. Rajiv, responsible for the success for  several commercials, is taking every effort to make this video stand out from the rest. Both Vijay and Nayanthara are expected to shake their legs for the video.

 

According to insiders, the video is expected to be ready within the first week of April. A segment of the video, featuring  a bunch of youngsters and top players from the Chennai team, was recently shot at AVM studios. [To know about AVM's connection with Chennai Super Kings, read here]

Rajiv is close to AVM. Remember Minasara Kanavu, he got it basically on the basis of his friendship with Guhanathan or his son(Sorry not sure)

@ Ottayan,
It seems most of the Kollywood artists/stars booked for Chennai Super Kings are either friends or atleast knownn to Gurunath Meiyappan.. For example, Gurunath's father - Balasubramanian was one of the producers for Minsara Kanavu..

I personally feel that the csk has not done a good job in promoting the team...having gr8 stars lik ARR ,its such a pity that they've nt come up with an anthem yet...its high time to show how gr8 chennaites are...

I agree with Sylvia. Knight Riders have done this 2 weeks back and we still dont have a song. With IPL scheduled to start in 2 days,
not having our anthem is very disappointing. They shd have signed up rahman for this. Out of desperation, i composed a small song and posted in youtube..

@ sylvia & Anomyous,
Yeah.. India Cements disappoints us by being late in coming with a song... But while kolkata knight riders is finding it tough to sell the tickets, Chennai Super Kings has a great response from the fans.. So they dont see that much reason for promotion to bring the crowds to the stadium... Their only focus would be to capture the television audience.. so they are little late.. :)

@ ka,
Part of the anthem could be seen in the ads running on televisions... For the whole anthem, Buzz is that we have to wait for the first match at chepauk.. It is supposed to released there..
