The lyrical video of the song "Vaanil Irul" from Ajithâ€™s upcoming Nerkonda Paarvai was released on YouTube on Wednesday.
An evocative piece delivered by two strong women - penned by Uma Devi and sung by Dhee - "Vaanil Irul" has been set to tune by Yuvan Shankar Raja. Shots from the film have been strung together in this lyrical video, showing us the relationship the three women characters will be sharing in the film.
This song that opens with the line "When darkness takes over the sky, lightning is our ally" speaks of resilience and the courage to overcome hardships. We believe "Vaanil Irul" will be in place of "Kaari Kaari" from the original Hindi film Pink. "Kari Kari" was sung by Qurat-ul-Ain Balouch.
In this film, Yuvan Shankar Raja is reuniting with Ajith after Aarrambam. The film was wrapped up in just three months and it features Ajith in the role of a criminal lawyer while Shraddha reprises Taapseeâ€™s role from the original.
Starring Ajith Kumar, Shraddha Srinath, Abhirami Venkatachalam and Andrea Tariang in lead roles, the film also marks the Tamil debut of Vidya Balan.
It was widely rumoured that Ajith will be crooning a song in the film, a motivational track, which was similar to "Tu Chal" in the original sung by Amitabh. Rubbishing the rumours, Yuvan said in a recent interview with Behindwoods that there is no such thing planned.
Directed by H Vinoth of Theeran Adhigaaram Ondru fame, the film is scheduled to release on August 10. This project is the result of producer Boney Kapoorâ€™s long-time wish of wanting to work with Ajith in Tamil. This will be the producerâ€™s return to the industry after 25 years. The film will also star Rangaraj Pandey, Adhik Ravichandran, Arjun Chidambaram, Aswin Rao and Sujith Shankar, among others.
