Prior to the teaser release, the makers had unveiled two singles from the film. Titled ‘Annaatthe Annaatthe’, the first one was sung by late singer SP Balasubrahmanyam. The song is a posthumous release. Rajinikanth, who has teamed up with the legendary singer for multiple songs, penned an emotional tweet mentioning he never imagined ‘Annaatthe Annaatthe’ to be the last collaboration with SPB. “During the filming of the song that SPB, the man who lived as my voice for 45 years, sung in Annaatthe, I never imagined that it would be the last song he would sing for me. My dear SPB will live on forever through his sweet voice,” Rajinikanth tweeted on October 4. 

Featuring Nayanthara and Rajinikanth, the second single titled ‘Saara Kaatrae’ is a romantic track sung by Sid Sriram and Shreya Ghoshal and set to tune by D Imman.
