This will be followed by the highlight of the evening – a special dance extravaganza featuring this year’s Deepavali song Thithikkum Deepavali composed by Vasantham Star winner and Kollywood music composer Shabir. Joining him for the lively performance are Vasantham singers Suthasini, Vishnu Balaji and Meenakshy, Yaar Antha Star 2020 winner, along with the Rameshwara dance team.

Another highlight of the programme will be a medley of sing-a-long 80’s classics, including Malayalam and Telugu songs.

And if fans can’t get enough of the addictive Thithikkum Deepavali, they can also join the online #ThithikkumChallenge by sending in clips of themselves dancing to the signature dance move from the song’s music video.  To further spread the cheer of Deepavali, participants are encouraged to film themselves decked out in festive outfits along with their family members.
