Govind Vasantha back to Malayalam after 96
Govind is currently one of the most wanted music directors in the Tamil film industry. The sensational success of Vijay Sethupathi-Trisha starrer ’96’ has helped him bag back to back big projects in Tamil. After a long gap, Govind is now making his comeback to his home turf, Malayalam industry. His comeback film is ‘Prithvi’, directed by debutant Abhijith Ashokan and produced by August Cinemas. Govind’s last full length work in Malayalam was ‘Haram’, released four years back in 2015.
For ‘Prithvi’, Govind has already songs with the legendary Bombay Jayshres and Bijibal. Last day, he took to social medias to share the news, along with sharing photos taken during the recording sessions.
Govind’s post reads,
I’m so glad to announce My first malayalam film I committed after 96, “Prithvi” directed by @Abijith Asokan is a movie with a beautiful beautiful storyline and some great moments. And this one is close to my heart because I got two artist extraordinaires to sing for my songs . @Bombay jayshree and The best Bijibal Maniyil (sic)
Besides ‘Prithvi’, Govind is also composing for another Malayalam film, ‘Padavettu’ starring Nivin Pauly in the lead. In Tamil, he has Jeethu Joseph’s upcoming film with Karthi, ‘Tughlaq Darbar’ with Vijay Sethupathi and an untitled one under Mani Ratnam’s production.
