`Sivaji' soundtrack, no longer a secret

Susan Muthalaly

CHENNAI: The soundtrack of Rajinikanth's `Sivaji' is no longer a closely guarded secret with three of the seven A.R. Rahman songs available on the Internet.

AVM Productions (the film's production company) manager K. Viswanathan said there were reportedly about 500 websites from where the songs could be downloaded.

The company has reported the leak to the cyber crime department and is awaiting action.

Due to this development, the movie's music may hit stores two days earlier than the original launch date of April 4.

But thanks to the talented Mr. ARR, AVM has actually recorded an increase in orders from dealers after the illegal release on the net, according to Mr. Viswanathan.

He said the response was overwhelming and that the current order figures stood at two lakh CDs and two lakh cassettes.

The songs that can be downloaded online are `Vaaji Vaaji', `Orukudai Sunlight' and `Sahaan Saaral'.
