Legendary singer, P Susheela, sings for Amala Paul's Aadai
Two songs and the film's theme track have already been released
Amala Paul's upcoming film, Aadai, directed by Meyaadha Maan-fame Ratna Kumar, has been slated for release on July 19. Now, we hear that veteran singer, P Susheela has sung a devotional song in the film, which will reportedly be released as the next single. Two songs and the film's theme track are already out.
Director Rathna Kumar took to Twitter to make the announcement. Revealing that the 83-year-old singer had performed the same song for the first time 70 years ago, the filmmaker dubbed her involvement in Aadai a true blessing from god. He also said that the track — a metal-version of a devotional song — has been titled Bhakti Metal.

Rathna Kumar further tweeted to Amala Paul saying that she was unfortunate in not meeting the legend in person. He, however, expressed full confidence that Amala will do full justice to her divine rendition on-screen.
@Amala_ams . You were really unlucky to miss meeting susheela ma in real. Hope you will make full justice to the song on screen— Rathna kumar (@MrRathna) July 11, 2019
Earlier, Aadai's teaser, which featured a shot of a nude Amala waking up to trauma, and the trailer, which saw Amala don many avatars including that of a joker, had raised expectations about the film.
Shot in live sync sound, Aadai will have music by Pradeep Kumar’s band Oorka, while Vijay Kartik Kannan of Iravaakaalam-fame is handling the cinematography.
