Ecstatic over this Sreeram remarked, “Indian Idol was a dream come true and now ‘Rehnuma’ in Narnia 3 is like magic unfolding right in front of my eyes. I am delighted, honoured and humbled to have this opportunity. Now, of course, it all depends on how well the audience accepts and responds to our endevaour. The final verdict, as always, is theirs.”

Shridhar Subramaniam, MD,Sony Music, India exclaims, “Sreerams versatility and talent as a singer have taken him places including a mermerising performance at the closing ceremony of the Common Wealth Games 2010 where he enthralled the stadium and television audience alike. Sony music is proud to be associated with this collaboration with the Narnia film, through which an Indian artist receives an international performance platform. Cinema, as a medium, is not only larger than life but also a very encouraging space that gets etched in the pages of history and that is what particularly makes this all the more exciting”

Mr. Vijay Singh, CEO, Fox Star Studios India comments, “Sreeram’s fresh, youthful voice is a perfect match to the exciting & thrilling Narnian experience. The melodious number is composed beautifully and is sure to be a hit among listeners!”
