Taxi, taxi… again!

As A. R. Rahman’s score ‘Taxi Taxi’ tops the charts, Sakkarakatti’s crew re-shoots the song with BlaaZe, Shantanoo and French models at Perambur


Imagine re-shooting a song with a totally new look. Well, when A. R. Rahman’s score for “Sakkarakatti” was declared a hit after its release by Sony BMG, V Creations, the producers of the film decided to re-shoot the song “Taxi Taxi…”

The song that’s topping retail charts, radio play lists and ring tone downloads, was re-framed over the weekend with Rap ace BlaaZe, the film’s hero Shantanoo Bhagyaraj and five French models at Perambur. The film, besides its fresh cast, will also bring to the fore a new directorial talent — Kalaa Prabhu, son of producer Kalaipuli S. Thanu.

“Sakkarakatti” has already sold over 1 lakh units. That, despite the audio release of much-hyped films such as “Kuselan”, “Sathyam” and “Saroja.”

“The re-shot version of ‘Taxi Taxi’… will hit music channels by the end of this month, ahead of the release of the film,” says Nandini Raman, marketing head, Sony BMG.
