Actor Karthi Sivakumar said he had to learn dance steps from Tamil cinema of the 1980s as well as horseriding for a song in his upcoming romantic-comedy "All in All Azhagu Raja", slated to release during Diwali next month.
"This song reminded me so much of music from Rajinikanth and Kamal Haasan's films of 1980s. It was so nostalgic shooting for it, especially learning horseriding and dancing to steps a la yesteryear's stars. A special thanks to Dinesh Master, who put in lot of effort to teach me these steps," Karthi told IANS.
The song, composed by S.S. Thaman, features Radhika Apte with Karthi.
For Karthi, it was "great fun".
"It brought back a lot of old memories of the Tamil cinema that I grew up watching. This song will definitely be one of the highlights of the film. I'm sure people will remember it for a long time," he added.For the first time in Karthi's career, his film will hit the marquee during Diwali.
"Diwali is certainly one of the biggest festivals actors would like to release their films in. This will be my first Diwali release and I'm confident that it will be a treat for my fans," he said.
Produced by Studio Green, "All in All Azhagu Raja" also features Kajal Agarwal, Prabhu and Saranya Ponvannan in important roles.
