‘Aalaporan Tamizhan’, the single track composed by Oscar winner AR Rahman, for Vijay’s Mersal was released today.
Vivek has penned the lyrics and Khailash Kher, Sathya Prakash, Deepak and Pooja AV are the singers. The 30-second teaser of the song, which was released earlier today, managed to generate enough interest about the song.
Listen to the song here.
About the song, Vivek told Silverscreen, “The song is specifically about Tamizh and Tamizh people. A situation in the film demanded a Tamizh paattu. Atlee and I discussed before writing the song and Vijay sir and Rahman sir also liked the idea. Being a lyricist, it was a great opportunity for me to write about Tamizh.
Highlighting a few lines from the song, Vivek tweeted:

Vivek explains, “When you trace the foundation of our language, it is nothing but love. No other language has zha, only Tamizh has. It is the crown and glory to Tamizh.”
The audio will be launched on August 20 and the makers are planning a grand launch. Buzz is that Kamal Haasan and Rajinikanth may attend the audio release.
