Chennai, July 30 (IANS) Disc Jockeys and upcoming musicians Khalid and Blaise said Wednesday they are all set to create a remix rap version of 'Thirukkural' under the baton of ace music director A.R. Rahman.

'We had several rounds of meetings with Rahman before he approved the tracks of remixing the couplets with classical music tracks of his score,' Khalid told IANS Wednesday.

'Since Rahman's path-breaking version of the patriotic song Vande Mataram has already appealed to India, under his supervision Thirukkural will win the world,' Blaise added.

Sources close to Rahman revealed that rap artiste Blaaze (singer, not musician Blaise), who sang in 'Bunty Aur Babli', has been signed to render the Tamil work into music appealing to all ages and continents.

The singer, whose real name is Lakshminarasimha Vijaya Rajagopala Seshadri Sharma Rajesh Raman, calls himself Blaaze and has achieved repeated success through screenings of his work on television channels.

Incidentally, Blaaze was the first Indian to be featured on VH1 music channel.

Blaaze has also sung in the recent Rajnikant hit 'Sivaji The Boss', besides the Amitabh-Abhishek-Rani Mukherjee starrer 'Bunty Aur Babli'.

Saint Thiruvalluvar, who is believed to have been born 30 years before Jesus Christ, authored 'Thirukkural'.

His 1330 couplets' compendium of Thirukkural is an interpretation of the right and wrong in every aspect of life.

Its philosophy has a global appeal and it has been translated into over 60 languages. The Tamil calendar was named after him.
