Chennai: The audio rights of the much anticipated Gautham Vasudev Menon-directed Tamil flick, `Neethane Enn Ponvasantham` has been bagged by Sony Music for a ‘fancy price’ of Rs two crore.
An official release here said audio rights for the film, the music for which has been scored by `maestro` Ilayaraja, has been sold for a ‘fancy price’ of more than the 2010 blockbuster, Vinnai Thandi Varuvaya (VTV) directed by Menon. But it did not mention the amount.

"Neethane Enn Ponvasantham," yet another offering from the critically acclaimed filmmaker, stars Jiiva and Samantha in the lead and has already created a buzz among movie buffs.
