Did you know Priyanka Chopra’s first film Thamizhan also marked her singing debut? Priyanka Chopra stepped into films with 2002 movie Thamizhan, for which she also sang the number Ullathai Killathe, marking her first stint at playback singing. Word has it that Priyanka’s co-star Vijay heard her humming on the sets of the film and insisted that Priyanka contribute to the film’s soundtrack. The playlist of Thamizhan also marked the debut of composer D Imman – both Priyanka and D Imman were all of 19 at that time. The composer recently shared a glimpse of Priyanka Chopra from the recording of the song Ullathai Killathe, from twenty years ago.
“Nostalgic Pic! Easily before two decades! A rare click during the recording session of my debut film, Vijay Anna starrer Thamizhan and it is Priyanka Chopra’s debut song as a singer Ullathai Killathey,” D Imman captioned the photo.
