Mynaa Audio Launch

The audio launch of Prabhu Solomon’s forthcoming film, Mynaa took place at Sathyam Cinemas recently, was a star-studded affair, with actor Kamal Haasan releasing the first CD and director Bala receiving it from him.

Speaking at the event, actor Shaam said that Myna’s director Prabhu Solomon was a staunch theist and while beginning every shot he would seek the blessings of Christ Jesus.

Bala, in his address, kicked off a controversy on the existence of God, over lyricist Yugabharathy’s statement saying Jesus has not and will not let down Prabhu Solomon.

He said that he came to the audio launch with the intention of talking about Prabhu Solomon’s efforts in making the film but when he heard that the director sought the blessings of the lord during each shot, he decided not to talk about the film. He said that if a director is capable, he would not believe in God.

“Anyone who has brain doesn’t need the help of the God,” he further added. Bala, however, added he is one of the strong critics for Prabhu’s films but with Myna he had only praises.
