They may have risen to great heights, but most Tamil directors don't forget their past or their mentors.

A classic case in point is director Mysskin, who has sung a song in director Vincent Selva's next film “Thulli Vilayadu.”

Says a source, “Mysskin began his career as an assistant director to Vincent Selva who has made films such as ‘Priyamudan' and ‘Jithan.' He used to sing songs for Vincent Selva's films. Now, even after becoming a successful director, Mysskin continues to croon for Vincent Selva. He has rendered a number in his next film ‘Thulli Vilayadu,' despite his hectic schedule.”

Says Vincent Selva, “It is true Mysskin has sung a song in ‘Thulli Vilayadu.' In fact, he has sung in every film of mine. This time, he has rendered an item number. The movie, a fun-filled thriller, features a newcomer Yuvaraaj as the hero, while Deepti of ‘Pattalam' fame plays the heroine. Prakash Raj too plays an important role in the film, shooting for which is almost over.”
