Neeraj Madhav, who rose to fame with his performance as Moosa in The Family Man, recently made his Tamil debut with Gautham Vasudev Menon's Vendhu Thanindhathu Kaadu.

The actor plays the role of Sreedharan, a youngster from Kerala who moves to Mumbai for a livelihood. Sreedharan's character draws a subtle yet compelling parallel to Silambarasan's Muthu.

Besides just acting, Neeraj also wrote and performed a rap song for a crucial part of the film. Soon after the film's release, the actor-singer was showered with praise for his riveting performance within the little screen time and the euphoric rap sequence.

Taking to Instagram, Neeraj revealed how he got the opportunity to sing in the AR Rahman musical. He wrote, "Manifest, and dreams do come true! U was trying so hard to keep this to myself, those who watched #VTK would alreadt know, but now I can tell the world! During my speech at #VTK audio launch, I happened to sing a verse dedicated to AR Rahman in front of him. The next thing I know, I'm sitting with the legend himself in his studio and making this track. True fanboy moment! Vendhu Thanindhathu Kaadu in the theatres now. My Tamil debut as an actor and a rapper." (sic)

Directed by Gautham Vasudev Menon, the film starring Silambarasan in the lead role, Siddhi Iddhani and Siddique, among others in pivotal roles, was released in the theatres on September 15.
