On 13 years of Pudhupettai, our song of the day is ‘Variyaa’ from the film starring Dhanush and others. The beats, bass and lyrics along with Dhanush’s dance made this song an instant super-hit when it released in 2006. The gangster film, centered on Dhanush, who becomes a drug-dealer and then a politician, co-starred Sneha and Sonia Agarwal in the lead. The film was directed by Dhanush’s brother Selvaraghavan, and after Thulluvadho IlamaiKaadhal Kondein and 7G Rainbow Colony, Yuvan Shankar Raja and the director came together for this film.
