Popular Bollywood musician, Salim Merchant (of the duo Salim – Sulaiman) has sung a song for the first time ever in Tamil for ‘KO – 2’, titled ‘Kannamma Reprise’. According to music composer Leon James, “Kannamma Reprise in Ko-2 is sung by Salim Merchant from the popular Bollywood Composer Duo Salim-Sulaiman. It’s his first ever Tamil song and I’m so happy to feature him in this album. While composing this track I desperately wanted Salim sir to sing it as he has so much emotion, depth and soul in his voice.I instantly spoke to the producer  Elred Kumar and  he was ok with it . He said songs are the basic invitations to the audience  that creates the urge to watch a film , if the songs deserve such talents never hesitate. This motivated me and I sent the song to him via email and he immediately responded by saying the song is beautiful and he would love to record it. Working with him on “Kannamma Reprise” was such a beautiful and inspiring experience. He is such a humble person and his dedication and love towards good music inspires me to work harder.”
