The ardent Vijay fans are over the moon as they are celebrating the double delight ahead of the release of much-awaited flick 'Varisu', which has been slated for a theatrical release during the Pongal 2023. On Sunday, the fans had a surreal treat from the makers as they released Varisu's second single 'Thee', which beyond being a song, became more special as it was unveiled as a tribute to Vijay who marked thirty years in his cinema career.
What else the fans need than a special tribute to their favourite idol on his iconic journey? It didn't end just as a song as what stirred a state of euphoria is an electrifying appearance from popular actor Simbu, who sang the song. It was the second delight for the fans as the unseen combo of Vijay and Simbu came together and set the screen on fire.
Varisu's first single 'Ranjithame' was released a few weeks ago and had a stupendous reception. The movie team decided to release the second single during the occasion of Vijay's 30 years in the cinema industry. Late last week, the makers announced that the second single 'Thee' will be released on Sunday and it was officially announced that Simbu has sung the song while the lyrics were penned by Vivek.
On Saturday, Varisu's producer took to Twitter and wrote, "Thank you Silambarasan sir for making Thee Thalapathy much more special with your voice. Varisu second single from tomorrow 4 pm." The movie's director Vamshi Paidipally wrote, "Thank you Silambarasan sir. You made Thee Thalapathy a memorable experience...it means a lot to us for what all you have done to make this song so special."
After teasing the fans and charged their expectations, the makers released the song at 4 pm on Sunday. The production house wrote, "Dedicating Thee Thalapathy as a treat to 3 decades of Vijayism. Celebrating Thalapathy, from our hearts to yours." The second single was as classy as captivating and it certainly was a complete recipe that served to the fans as a double delight.
The second single, which runs for little over four minutes, was shot with an electrifying background and Simbu had fueled the flames with his vocals and dance. The song had the features of Vijay, lyricist Vivek, and choreographer Sandy and ends with a note, "A tribute to Thalapathy". The second single is ruling the trending chart as it is crossing millions of views as fans from across and beyond the borders relish the double delight.
The second single and its viral wave had indeed taken the expectations of Varisu further as the days are counted for its release. Within hours, the second single has garnered over five million views and by the time of writing this content, 'Thee' has breached 8.5 million views on YouTube. As the song is going super viral, actor Simbu has extended his wishes to the Varisu team.
Taking to Twitter on Sunday, Simbu wrote, "Thee Thalapathy for my dear Thalapathy Actor Vijay na and darling Thaman. Best wishes to the whole team." Varisu is bankrolled by Dil Raju's Sri Venkateswara Creations and while Vijay plays the lead role, Rashmika Mandanna plays the female lead and Shaam, Prabhu, Sarathkumar, Prakash Raj, Srikanth, Khusbu, and Yogi Babu play important roles. Thaman has composed the music and Varisu will most likely be hitting the screens on January 12, 2023, locking horns with Ajith's 'Thunivu'.
