Composer AR Rahman and filmmaker Gautham Vasudev Menon have reunited for upcoming Tamil short - Karthik Dial Seytha Yenn – a reboot of runaway romantic hit, Vinnaithaandi Varuvaaya (VTV), according to a new report.

The Times of India reports that Rahman has come on board to compose tunes for the short whose teaser was released last week.

Gautham and Trisha have joined hands again for the short film which will be released soon. The short is a reboot of Vinnaithaandi Varuvaaya, and as per the teaser released last week, it features Trisha reviving her most-loved on-screen avatar, Jessie.

Last week, Gautham took to Twitter to share the teaser. He wrote: “There’s hope and a short film coming soon! Here’s the link to the teaser.”

The teaser features Trisha talking to Karthik on the phone. It’s worth mentioning that Simbu played the character of Karthik, an aspiring filmmaker, in Vinnaithaandi Varuvaaya. Trisha is seen encouraging Karthik on the phone. “Everything will be alright. Theatres will open soon. There’s Netflix and Amazon now. They’ll all come looking for you. They all want good content, right? Everything will be fine. You wait and see.”

The teaser ends with VTV’s signature tune. Gautham plans to release the short film soon. Upon the release of the teaser, Simbu’s fans on Twitter demanded that they want to see their star also feature in the short.
