The audio of Thuppakki was launched earlier today (October 9) around 10 am at Sheraton Park Hotel, Chennai. It was graced by Vijay, AR Murugadoss, SA Chandrasekar, Sathyan, Kajal Aggarwal, Santosh Sivan, Madhan Karky, Harris Jayaraj and others.
Sources have said that today is an auspicious day in Pitru Paksha (fortnight of the ancestors). Even though Hindus do not initiate or start any important work in this period, the makers of the film felt that there was an auspicious time between 9.50 am and 10 am and it was a good time for any initiation in this season.
Speaking at the occasion, Harris Jayaraj said that Thuppakki album is a pure mass music album. Vijay has recorded a song. The musician claims that he had observed the actor's pronunciation when he had crooned Nanban songs on stage earlier. As he was impressed by it, he asked Vijay to croon the track, 'Google google...'.
Producer Kalaiphuli Dhanu heaped praises on Harris Jayaraj and said, "The music director has given him 10,000 times better music than our Khakka Khakka." He also said that Vijay stood like a pillar of strength during the making of Thuppakki. He ended on the note that the film has come up like a Hollywood flick.
