A R Rahman Discloses Secret of Omane Penne

While Tamil music fans might be fast catching on to Omana Penne… (from Vinnaithaandi Varuvaayaa), here’s a little secret about the number. The song was originally slotted to be sung by none other than A R Rahman himself but ultimately,

It was the young and energetic Benny Dayal, who got to croon it. Why’s that, we asked the Oscar winner recently. 
“I was tired,” he laughs, and adds, “On a serious note, I found my role as a singer in the Manipaaya… number better.” 

After he recorded Benny’s version of the song, the composer decided to retain it in the soundtrack.
 “Benny did a good job on the song,” states Rahman, “So, that’s the version you listen to in the album.”
