Apart from announcing the release date of the film, Mohanlal also released the third song from the film.
Unni Mukundan said, “I am really happy to share the third song from my film ‘Meppadiyan’. ‘Meppadiyan’ had started its journey from Sabarimala and I’m just blessed to have had the opportunity to render these lines in the glory of Ayyappan. Also, it’s a genre that I haven’t tried, so it definitely is the most challenging song that I have sung. Rahul has done a fantastic job. And I just love the lyrics by Vinayak.”
