Singer P Susheela has recorded a song for Amala Paul-starrer Aadai, directed by Rathna Kumar. The devotional song titled ‘Raksha Raksha Jagan Maatha’, will release as the third single soon.
The director shared pictures from the recording studio and said Susheela first sang the song 70 years ago. “At the age of 83, P Susheela amma has sung a devotional song for our film Aadai. She sang the same song for the 1st time 70 years ago. It was a blessing from god to have her voice in our film.”

The song is composed by Pradeep Kumar’s band Oorka. Pradeep said, “The director wanted a devotional song to depict the mother and daughter’s relationship in the film, and P Susheela amma readily agreed to sing it for us. She told us she first sang this song when she was 14. We were lucky to meet and record the song with her.” He said that the track in the film will be a metal version of the devotional song.
Two songs from the film, and the theme track are already out. The teaser released in June and has nearly 10 million views on YouTube. It was appreciated for its bold take on a traumatic situation that Amala Paul’s character finds herself in. The film’s trailer also released recently and been trending.
Aadai has Bijili Ramesh, Vivek Prasanna and Sarithran in important roles. Cinematography is by Vijay Karthik Kanna and editing by Shafique Mohammed Ali. V Studios are the producers of the film.
The film has been certified ‘A’ by the Censor Board. It releases on July 19.
Meanwhile, Amala Paul recently made the headlines when she slammed Chandaraa Arts, the producers of Vijay Sethupathi-starrer VSP33, and accused them of removing her from the film after watching the teaser of Aadai. She had to quit the film before shoot for her portions could begin.
Amala Paul will next be seen in Adho Andha Paravai Pola, the Malayalam films Aadujeevitham, Parannu Parannu, and her home production Cadaver.
