As he watched Aajeedh perform and finally win the Airtel Super Singer Junior title 2012, director Ashik realised that the 10 year old was good at both emoting and singing. He promptly cast him in Vu . Then he came to know that his music director Abhijit Ramasamy also had similar intentions, making him sing a song in the film. “It finally turned out that Aajeedh sang a song, ‘Thikki thinarudhu devadhai, vetkappadudhoru poomazhai’, which was picturised on him as he plays an important role in Vu . He sings the song, written by Murugan Mandiram, with another small girl, B. Shruthi,” says Ashik.
