In December 2015, Chennai came to a stand still. The city was affected by heavy rainfall, which resulted in floods. Families were broken, houses were destroyed and several people lost their lives. Yet, the city fought hard to work together. Residents of the city believed helping their neighbors, friends, and even strangers. What won the nation’s attention to the city is how it managed to rise back even when it was crumbling.
Chiyaan Vikram has now directed a music video based on this very theme. Titled Spirit of Chennai, it pays a tribute to the spirit of the city and its volunteers during the floods that hit the state. Composed by CGirinandh, the song features the voices of over 28 singers, including Shankar Mahadevan,Hariharan and S P Balasubrahmanyam. The visuals of Spirit Of Chennai, features some popular actors from all south film industries. Some notable stars include Jayam Ravi, Prabhu Deva, Nayanthara, Nithya Menen, Varalakshmi Sarathkumar, Suriya, Nivin Pauly, Karthi and Bobby Simha.
