After “Singappenney”, an ode to women, the second song of Vijay’s Bigil is out. Titled “Verithanam”, Vijay has lent his voice to an AR Rahman track for the first time. The lyrics have been penned by Vivek.
The song is a fast-paced dance number, the kind of song that has become a staple in Vijay’s films. It is definitely fun, with a rustic feel. The lyric video has snippets from the making of the song and showcases some exciting dance moves. “Verithanam” is sure to be a hit with Vijay fans.
Producer Archana Kalpathy, who is bankrolling Bigil under the banner of AGS Entertainment, earlier shared some behind the scenes photos of the recording on Twitter. “A big thank you to our #Thalapathy from all of us (His fans) for granting our request to sing in this album Trust me the song is #Verithanam Thank you @arrahman Sir, @Atlee_dir @Lyricist_Vivek for making this happen @SonyMusicSouth #Bigil,” she tweeted.
