With the makers of Vijay's Bigil planning for the audio launch, a song from the film was leaked online on Tuesday. The track, which is sung by AR Rahman and has lyrics written by Vivek, hit the internet through its backdoors. The film marks the third consecutive collaboration of AR Rahman and Vijay after Mersal and Sarkar.
The number which is titled 'Singa Penne', is touted to be a motivational track like VIjay-Rahman's previous tracks 'Ella Pugazhum Oruvanuke' from Azhagiya Tamizh Magan and 'Aalaporan Tamizhan' in Mersal. It is believed to be recorded from the shooting spot of the film and the makers are trying to remove the pirated song link from the internet.
Bigil, directed by Atlee Kumar, has Nayanthara playing the female lead. The director had worked with Vijay in Mersal and the film turned out to be a big success. It was recently announced that Vijay will be crooning a song for the film.
Archana Kalpathi, creative producer of the film, announced: “A big thank you to our #Thalapathy from all of us (His fans) for granting our request to sing in this album Trust me the song is #Verithanam Thank you @arrahman Sir, @Atlee_dir @Lyricist_Vivek for making this happen @SonyMusicSouth #Bigil”
