Tamil actor Dhanush has crooned the title song of Sai Dharam Tej's Telugu film "Thikka," for which S Thaman has composed the music. Its audio album will be launched at a grand function to be held on July 30.

Dhanush debuted as a playback singer after singing for the movie "Pudhukottaiyilirundhu Saravanan" in 2004. Later, he recorded some songs for films like "Pudhupettai" (2006), "Aayirathil Oruvan" (2010) and "Mayakkam Enna" (2011).
