The upcoming Tamil film, Chennai to Singapore, is planning a rather unique way to promote its songs. The film, which features six songs, will be unveiled as part of the music composer Ghibran’s sojourn across six countries.

The musical journey will begin here on August 12 and will go through Bhutan, Myanmar, Thailand, Malaysia, and will finally halt at Singapore. Each track will be released in one country.

Starring newcomers Gokul Anand, Anju Kurian and Rajesh in the lead roles, the film is directed by debutant Abbas Akbar.

“August 12 is the big day for our Chennai to Singapore team and we are ready with our big black beast, Ford Endeavour. Most people think that travelling from Chennai to Singapore is possible only by air but we can also travel through roads,” said Ghibran.

“Since it is a twenty-day journey, the steering should be handled by two persons. Our director Abbas is an expert in driving but I have learnt driving only a few months before,” he said.

The film is very special to Ghibran.

“With new script, new director and new lead actors, we also wanted our music to be fresh. Hence, this idea to release the music across six countries,” he added.
