Composer AR Rahman and filmmaker Gautham Vasudev Menon have reunited for the upcoming Tamil short, Karthik Dial Seytha Yenn, a reboot of the runaway romantic hit, Vinnaithaandi Varuvaaya (2010).

According to a report that appeared in The Times of India daily, Rahman has come on board to compose the music for the short, whose teaser was released last week.

Menon and Trisha Krishnan have joined hands again for the film which will be released soon. The teaser, which released last week, shows Trisha reviving her most-loved on screen character, Jessie.

The teaser features the actress talking to Karthik on the phone. It’s worth mentioning that Simbu played the character of Karthik, an aspiring filmmaker, in Vinnaithaandi Varuvaaya. It ends with the 2010 film's signature tune.

The second teaser of the short is expected to be released this week. It is rumoured that it will feature Karthik on the other end of the line talking to Jessie.

On the career front, Menon awaits the release of his upcoming Tamil film, Joshua: Imai Pol Kaakha (2020). He also recently confirmed that he is in talks with Kamal Haasan for the sequel to Vettaiyadu Vilaiyadu (2006).
