Earlier on X (formerly Twitter), ace music director Yuvan Shankar Raja released a statement, clarifying to his fans and the media that he has no association with the film ‘Then Mavattam’ as suggested by the makers. 

In his post on X, the music director wrote, “ A clarification for Press, Media, and fans! I have not been committed or approached by anyone for being the music director of the above film, ‘Then Mavattam’”.

This post from Yuvan Shankar Raja came after RK Suresh posted the first look and title of his upcoming film ‘Then Mavattam’. The poster also contained the line: ‘music by  Yuvan Shankar Raja’.

Following Yuvan Shankar Raja’s clarification post, producer and actor of Then Mavattam, RK Suresh posted on his X account, stating, “Hi Yuvan sir u have signed for movie and live in concert. Kindly check the agreement thank you Yuvan sir.”
