According to the latest buzz, music composer Harris Jayaraj is all set to team up with director Gautham Menon in his new film, starring Ajith.
Earlier, speculations were rife that Oscar-winner AR Rahman or Anirudh might be working on the soundtrack of the Gautham-Ajith film. But now, reports claim that Harris will be teaming up with Gautham.
If the reports turn out to be true, then it would mark the reunion of the director-music composer duo, after 2008's "Vaaranam Aayiram".

The official announcement is expected on 19 March.

The "Singam" star sports a stylish look in the Lingusamy directorial, with trendy hair and beard. He is reportedly playing a character who has grey shades.
"I play a South Indian living in Mumbai and my character has some grey shades too. The new look will suit the character that I am playing. Lingusamy's screenplay and characterization are exciting. There will be a lot of romance and action in the movie, in line with the director's trademark style. We are currently in Mumbai and after completing work here, most of the remaining part of the movie will be canned in Hyderabad," Suriya was quoted as saying by Behindwoods.
Samantha Ruth Prabhu plays the female lead opposite Suriya. Comedian Soori is reportedly also part of the project. Earlier, there were reports that Vivek will be starring in the film but his presence has not yet been confirmed.
