The song, which has been titled, Verithanam marks the first vocal contribution of the actor to the composer's music
Vijay, who last lent his voice to the track Papa Papa from Bairavaa in 2017, has now sung a song for his upcoming film, Bigil. The song, Verithanam marks the first time the actor is singing for AR Rahman.
Though the actor-composer duo have worked together on several films in the past, like Udhaya, Azhagiya Tamizh Magan, Mersal, and Sarkar, Vijay had not lent his voice to a song composed by Rahman till now.
Verithanam, the first single from the Atlee-directorial, has lyrics by Vivek, who has previously penned the chartbuster, Aalaporan Tamizhan from Mersal.
