Silambarasan TR's Vendhu Thanindhu Kaadu recently wrapped up its shooting and blockbuster director Gautham Menon is currently carrying forward the post-production works at a brisk pace. Being produced by Dr. Ishari K. Ganesh's Vels Film International banner, the upcoming film is billed to be an intense action-drama and will feature songs and a background score by Academy Award-winning composer A. R. Rahman. On Wednesday, the makers dropped a much-awaited update from Vendhu Thanindhu Kaadu announcing that the first song from the film will be released on May 6.

Rahman after their blockbusters Vinnaithaandi Varuvaayaa and Achcham Yenbadhu Madamaiyada. The VTK teaser, which was released earlier this year, featured A. R. Rahman's powerful vocals in the 'Marakkuma Nenjam' song, and received a sensational response from fans.
