Shashaa Tirupati and Karthik have lent their voices to the song, while Thamarai has penned the lyrics. Music for the film has been composed by Harris Jayaraj. Dhruva Natchathiram marks the seventh collaboration between Menon and Jayaraj after Yennai Arindhaal (2015 ), that featured Ajith in the lead role.
The song, featuring the lead actors, shuffles between past and present relationships of the protagonist’s life. The location of the song sequence also varies, from sunny plains to wet and overcast hills.
Menon-Jayaraj’s other works include, Minnale (2001) and its Hindi remake Rehna Hai Terre Dil Mein, Kaakha Kaakha (2003), Vettaiyaadu Vilaiyaadu (2006), Pachaikili Muthucharam (2007), and Vaaranam Aayiram (2008).
According to The Times of India, the song was supposed to release in 2018 but was postponed because of delay in production. The film went on floors in 2016 and was shot across seven countries. It got delayed due to technical issues.
Written and directed by Menon, the Tamil spy film’s first teaser revolves around John (Vikram) who runs an ‘Indian covert unit’ in New York and needs to be tracked down by an anonymous man. Upon realising the threat to his mentor from the anonymous source, John returns to India in the second teaser.
Meanwhile, Menon has an array of films that are heading for direct-to-OTT releases. Paava Kadhaigal, Netflix’s first Tamil film and an anthology of four stories, will be directed by Menon along with Vetrimaaran, Sudha Kongara, and Vignesh Shivan. His next, Amazon Prime Video’s Tamil anthology film alongside Mani Ratnam, Rajiv Menon, Sudha Kongara, and Karthik Subbaraj, Putham Pudhu Kaalai, is slated to release on October 16.
