‘Sathiyama Nee Enaku Thevaiyillai’ is how the song penned down by director Durai Senthil for his upcoming flick ‘Ethir Neechal’ opens. Nayanthara, who usually does not accept offers to do special songs, except like ‘Balleilaka’ from ‘Sivaji’, had given a nod to perform in this kuththu song from the film that stars Siva Karthiyan, Priya Anand and Nandita in the lead.
The director, a former associate of stalwart directors Vetri Maaran and Balu Mahindra, was quizzed about the song, to which he replied “The song was excellently composed by Anirudh. We designed a set to resemble a highway motel, in Nagercoil. In the night-like settings, the song was shot over a three-day span.” But how did the glam doll nod to do this special performance? It was none other than the producer of the movie, Dhanush, who convinced her to do the number! Incidentally, Dhanush also plays a cameo in the film.
