Remember Anirudh Ravichander, arey the one who composed ‘Kolaveri di…’ song. Anirudh has once again come into news but this time for wrong reasons. His pictures with Tamil actress-singer Andrea Jeremiah have leaked online which depict them in intimate moments.
Anirudh and Andrea are least bothered about these pictures. Andrea admitted that the pictures are not morphed and were taken almost 15-16 months back when they were in relationship. These pictures have gone viral and it is being circulated from down south to up north without any restraint.
New Delhi: `Kolaveri Di` Monday crossed 50 million hits on YouTube, revealing that music lovers have yet to get over southern superstar Dhanush`s unusual song.
Till Monday afternoon, 50,086,633 hits were recorded. Thanks to its peppy, catchy tune and bilingual lyrics, the song went viral when it was launched on the internet Nov 16 and got more than a million hits within a day of its release.
Dhanush, who is Tamil matinee idol Rajinikanth`s son-in-law, penned the lyrics in English and Tamil and even sung it. Composed by 21-year-old Anirudh Ravichander, the song is a part of Dhanush`s forthcoming movie “3”, which is his wife Aishwarya Rajinijanth`s directorial debut.
Dhanush also composed a Sachin Tendulkar anthem. “Kolaveri Di” means murderous rage. The popularity of the song led to the creation of a number of imitations and parodies in various languages around the world depicting different types of situations.
The most obvious thing that you want to ask singer turned actor Shruti Haasan is why she hasn’t lent her voice to the Tamil song, Kolaveri which is a rage online. While superstar Rajinikanth’s son-in-law Dhanush, who sings the song, has attracted a huge fan following, Shruti, who’s part of the music video, has not even sung a line in it.
“When I first heard the song, I absolutely loved it,” gushes the actor. “It’s unique, especially since it hardly has a handful of Tamil words in it. Dhanush has sung it so wonderfully. His voice sets the song apart. Frankly, I didn’t expect the song to become such a rage. Kolaveri has forever ruined my entrance to any party…thanks to the number of requests we get to sing the song live. It is the next youth anthem, their own party anthem,” she chuckles.
Shruti may not have sung the Kolaveri ditty, but she has sung another song for the same film. “I have sung another song in the film. That one is a lovely song too, but completely different from Kolaveri,” she says.
Considering, she is actor Kamal Haasan’s daughter and Dhanush is actor Rajinikanth’s son-in-law, was there any pressure to live up to their respective legacies? “Not at all”, says Shruti, adding,“In fact, I don’t think either of us got that baggage on the sets. We do have a lot of baggage because of the pressure but I guess things work with us because neither of us are here to outdo one another or prove anything to anyone.”
What about her film trek in Bollywood? The actor seem to have completely disappeared afterher debut film Luck. “I would love to work in Bollywood. In the past couple of years, my choices of films and career graph have changed so much. It is not like I don’t get offers, but there’s been nothing that would make me jump up and say ‘yes’,” says Shruti.“Anyway, I did not become an actor to be famous. I grew up with two famous people at home. I just came here to find myself and I am really happy with my journey so far,” she states emphatically.
