The song Why this kolaveri di… has become the most popular song of the year with radio channels continuously broadcasting the song at regular intervals. Penned and sung by actor Dhanush, the song is part of the upcoming film 3 which pairs Dhanush opposite the stunner Shruti Haasan for the first time.
Incidentally, 3 also marks the directorial debut of Dhanush’s wife and superstar Rajinikanth’s daughter Aishwarya. She had earlier assisted director Selvaraghavan as an assistant director during the making of films like Aayirathil Oruvan. It is said that in order to prop up the box-office prospects of the film, Aishwarya is planning to make her father appear in a ‘special appearance’ in the Kolaveri song.
Even Bollywood’s Amitabh Bachchan said that he liked the song very much. Rajini, who has also taken a liking to the song, reportedly laughed his heart out when he head the song for the first time. Rajini reportedly appreciated the ‘innovative’ lyrics and the way the song has been sung. As Rajini predicted, the song then went onto become almost a rage among youths and music lovers.
Dhanush, however, remains non-committal about Rajini’s presence in the song. He only says that he and Aishwarya would only feel proud if superstar agrees to appear in the song sequence albeit briefly.
