Opening songs in Vijay’s films always come with a charm. Proving this once again is a number from his 51st film ‘Kaavalkaran’, a remake of Malayalam super hit ‘Bodyguard’, both directed by ace Mollywood filmmaker Siddique.
‘Mannai kaappaan oruvan, Vinnai kaappaan oruvan… Ennai unnai kaakkum avaney avaney Iraivan….’ These are the starting lines of the mass-intro song of the ‘Ilaya Thalapathi’ in the film, if sources are to be believed.
The song was recently shot on the actor and a large number of junior artistes near the famous Sri Mahalingaswamy shrine in Thiruvidaimarudur, a temple town near Kumbakonam. Also present in the shoot was Asin, the heroine of the movie.
While Vijay was spotted in a violet t-shirt and blue jean, Asin was seen wearing a brown sari. Earlier, poojas were performed at the shrine for the success of the film, we learn. A large number of students and public thronged the place after news spread that Vijay was in their place.
