We had earlier reported that Simbu and Gautham Karthik have joined hands for Pathu Thala, the official Tamil remake of Kannada film Mufti. Earlier, Narthan, who directed the original was supposed to direct the remake. But, Narthan opted out of the film due to reasons best known to them. So, producer KE Gnaanvelraja roped in Krishna of Sillunu Oru Kaadhal fame to doirect the film. Now, there is a latest addition to the crew of Pathu Thala. Composer AR Rahman has been roped in to score the tunes for Simbu's Pathu Thala.
For director Krishna, Pathu Thala is a reunion of sorts as he is reuniting with AR Rahman after 14 years. He had worked on Suriya and Jyotika's Sillunu Oru Kaadhal with producer KE Gnanavel Raja and AR Rahaman. In an interview with TOI, Krishna said, "When we decided to do a film together, Raja and I had the same thought – it would be nice if Rahman did the music. And the film has a lot of scope for music. Sillunu Oru Kadhal was a romantic film and there was scope to explore romance through songs. And with Pathu Thala, there is scope to experiment with sounds."
