New Movie song from "Pasakara Nanbargal" film


Hello dears!!

Do listen to my latest song from the film "Pasakara Nanbargal" starring Ajmal in the music direction of Sri Dhina. "Rekka katti", a happy high school song...Dhina sir wanted me to give the legendary K B Sundarambal amma's feel and intonation to my portions :-) Had fun while recording, hope the movie and song are a big hit.
