The second single from Rajinikanth's Petta was released on Friday. 'Ullaallaa' is a fun, light-hearted song sung by Nakash Aziz and Inno Genga. The visuals show director Karthik Subbaraj explaining the scene to the artistes and the dancers rehearsing. It also shows stills of Rajinikanth dancing.

Earlier in the day, a sneak peak of the song was released. It had music composer Anirudh talking about the song and how it has been conceptualised. Anirudh had said that the song is based on a funny scene from Rajinikanth’s 1981 comedy Thillu Mullu in which his character Indiran lies to his boss to go watch a football match. If you’ve got a better memory, you might remember the 'Baila' tune that was played during this scene.

Hoping to recreate this mood in Rajinikanth’s upcoming Petta, music director Anirudh shared in a sneak-peek clip that the next song from the film was inspired by this particular scene from the star’s cult classic. In the one-minute video, Anirudh was heard saying, “This is Thalaivar Baila - ‘Ullaallaa’. We must’ve enjoyed his naughtiness in the Thillu Mullu football stadium scene. So we thought it would be fun to have such a number in Petta. Hope you guys enjoy 'Ullaallaa'.”

The video showed Anirudh dancing along with two other artistes to a catchy tune while Rajinikanth’s scene from the old film was juxtaposed. The video ended with Thenga Sreenivasan’s dialogue from Thillu Mullu in which he says before the scene actually begins - “If you make him suffer, I’ll come all the way to Thiruttani to scold you.” 

The film’s first single, ‘Marana Mass’, was released earlier this week. Just hours before the song’s release, the makers had put out a sneak-peek of its making, creating a buzz for the song.
