SV [ Thu, Jul 18, 2013 ]
- Veteran lyricist Vaali who was admitted to hospital due to breathing trouble passed away today at the Apollo Hospitals in Chennai. He was 82 and is survived by his son. Vaali was also known as Vaaliba Kavignar.
Vaali's brilliant lyrics were part of most of MGR films. He has also written some of the finest lyrics for Kamal Haasan and Rajinikanth.
He was such a versatile writer that on one end he came up with songs like Ammavendrazhaikatha uyirillaye... and on the other hand wrote kuthu songs like Singari sarakku nalla sarakku...
It has to be recalled that Dhanush's Mariyan releasing tomorrow has two songs set to tune for his lyrics.
