The team of Veetla Vishesham, starring RJ Balaji in the lead, had unveiled the video song, titled Daddy Song, yesterday. The peppy track had Balaji himself lending voice for it. Interestingly, he has directed the movie, too, along with NJ Saravanan, with whom he helmed Mookuthi Amman in 2020.

He has now posted a BTS video of the song making in which he is seen crooning the song along with the music director Girishh Gopalakrishnan. The two-and-a-half minute video is as funny as the film's trailer which was released recently by the makers.

It begins with Balaji calling himself "Ezhaigalin Anirudh" and says that he was keen on roping in Anirudh to sing the song, but he couldn't do it as the latter has been having busy schedules for a while. He says, "For almost six months, I was after Anirudh to lend his voice for the song. He is the music composer for all big ticket films which are releasing in Tamil these days. So, I myself felt it isn't right to bother him." 

Further, Balaji adds that he has been skeptical about the reception for the BTS video of him crooning the song. So, he brought the composer Girishh, too, in the video.

Balaji is seen asking several doubts to Girishh during the recording and says sarcastically that he is expecting 1 lakh million views for the song. Pa Vijay has penned lyrics for the song which explains a son's woes after he gets to know that his middle-aged parents are expecting another child. 

The movie, which is the remake of Hindi film Badhaai Ho, will hit the screens on June 17, Sathyaraj and Urvashi play a couple in the project which has Yogi Babu, Pugazh, Pavitra Lokesh and KPAC Lalitha among others essaying crucial roles in it.
