Today, the 26th of June, is observed as the International Day Against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking. Having said that, many people on social media are sharing their own experiences of how drugs impacted their lives, asking everyone to stay away from it. Supporting the noble cause, ace filmmaker and cinematographer Rajiv Menon, music director G.V.Prakash and lyricist Madhan Karky have come together to make a special song to create awareness among the people. This video has been initiated and produced by the Tamil Nadu Government and Tamil Nadu Police.

The video song has been released on the official YouTube channel of Sony Music and it has come as a surprise release for the fans. Titled as ‘Say No To Drugs’, this special song is directed by Rajiv Menon, while G.V.Prakash Kumar has composed, crooned (additional vocal support from director Adhik Ravichandran) and performed it. The song has lyrics by Madhan Karky, editing by Kavin Adhitya, and camera work by R Siddarth. 'Say No To Drugs, Say Yes to Life' is the core theme and tagline of this song. The video song is neatly packed, serving the right purpose and being made by an acclaimed technician like Rajiv Menon, the quality of the work looks top-class and unique.

It can be noted that G.V.Prakash and Rajiv Menon have already worked together in the film, Sarvam Thaala Mayam, which received fairly positive reviews for its strong writing and impressive performances of the lead actors. For those who haven’t seen the film yet, it is currently streaming officially on Netflix and you can watch it there.

On the acting front, G.V.Prakash has some really interesting projects in his kitty. Ayngaran, Aayiram Jenmangal, Adangathey, 4G and Vasanathabalan's Jail are ready and waiting for release. Films like Kadhalikka Yarumillai (with Raiza), Bachelor, Kadhalai Thedi Nithyanandha, an untitled film with Gautham Menon (as an actor) are in shooting stages.

G.V.Prakash is indeed a busy man with his musical projects as well. He is currently awaiting the release of his next biggie, Soorarai Pottru that stars Suriya in the lead, under Sudha Kongara’s direction. He would also be composing the music for Dhanush's untitled next (D43) with Karthick Naren and Suriya's action drama Vaadivaasal with director Vetri Maaran.
