Though the title has a famous constituency name in Chennai, RK Nagar has nothing to do with politics as such, asserted the director Saravana Rajan.

The audio launch of the Venkat Prabhu and Badri Kasturi produced film RK Nagar was a gala affair. The hero Vaibhav Reddy, the film’s composer Premgi Amaren, Mirchi Shiva, Dev, Vijay Vasanth, Nitin Sathya, Panchu Subbu, Ajay and Sakthi Saravanan were seen bonding with each other. Anirudh unveiled the first set of audio admitting he shares a great friendship with the team.

Speaking on the occasion, Premgi explained in a lighter vein about the prefix ‘Isai Tsunami’ attached to his name in the title credits. “When I did music for films like Ennomo Nadakkudhu and Achchamindri, I told director Rajapandi to give a sobriquet to me.  I noticed that the prefixes given to AR Rahman as ‘Isai Puyal and to Deva sir as ‘Thenisai Thendral’ had something to do with weather (Puyal, Thendral ). So, I suggested Tsunami, which is also weather related but a disaster. So, why not ‘Isai Tsunami’ Premigi? But he said you are doing good music. Why a disastrous title? So he made it ‘Isai Ilaval.’ Later Yuvan Shankar Raja released the first song of RK Nagar where he asked me to retain ‘Isai Tsunami’. My guru is Yuvan and hence I stick to that sobriquet from RK Nagar in the title credits.  Though the title has a famous constituency name in Chennai, RK Nagar has nothing to do with politics as such, asserted the director Saravana Rajan.
