Ghibran is one of the leading music composers in Tamil cinema who is widely known among the audience for his fantastic work in movies like Vaagai Sooda Vaa. Thirumanam Ennum Nikkah, Adhe Kangal, Magalir Mattum, Aramm, Theeran Adhigaaram Ondru, Raatsasan, Kadaram Kondaan, Saaho, Ka Pae Ranasingam, and more. He got the opportunity to work with Ulaganayagan Kamal not once, not twice, but four times. Ghibran composed music for four Kamal Haasan films - Uttama Villain, Papanasam, Thoongavan, and Vishwaroopam 2. Among the four, his score in Uttama Villain stood out and won the hearts of the audience. His soulful and magical score in the film elevated the emotional scenes to a different level and there is a separate fan base for Ghibran's work in the film. Notably, the talented composer received several notable awards and honours for his music in Uttama Villain.
In a shocking turn of events, Ghibran's music from Uttama Villain has been used in the Hindi web series titled Paurashpur. Yes! The iconic theme music of Uttama Villain has been used in an important scene in the web series and no credits have been given to the original creators. Paurashpur is a historical web series in Hindi that stars Shilpa Shinde, Annu Kapoor, and Milind Soman in the lead roles. The series is currently streaming on ALT Balaji platform. One of the fans, who was shocked to hear Uttama Villain's music in Paurashpur, recorded that particular portion as a video and shared it to music director Ghibran on Twitter.
The composer was also shocked to witness this happen. He tweeted, "I am in shock". The fans are requesting Ghibran to sue the makers of the show for not acquiring proper rights to use the music. Will Ghibran take any legal steps on this issue? Let us wait and watch.
Meanwhile, Ghibran is all geared up for the release of his next Tamil film, Maara which is scheduled for a direct digital OTT release, tomorrow (January 8). Maara will begin streaming from tomorrow on Amazon Prime Video and the fans are eagerly looking forward to it. Maara, which features Madhavan and Shraddha Srinath in the lead roles, is the official Tamil remake of the critically acclaimed Malayalam film, Charlie. Maara is directed by Dhilip Kumar. Ghibran's songs in Maara have received a good response and the majority felt that the album sounded very fresh and original.
