Following the footsteps of Bollywood actors Aamir Khan, Shah Rukh Khan and Sanjay Dutt, Dhanush has lent his voice to this catchy number. Interestingly, he has also penned the lyrics of Kolaveri Di.

In an interview lately Dhanush revealed, "I had a lot of free time on the sets of 3. I just tried to put in some dummy words in the tunes and everyone liked it." 3 is an upcoming Tamil film directed by Dhanush's wife Aishwarya. Anirudh, the music director of the film is thrilled with the song's popularity. Anirudh is a newcomer and his experiment has really paid off.

As Dhanush says, it's a song fit for bathroom singers. Its simple beats make it more catchy. Dhanush's description of heartbreak through Kolaveri Di is extremely funny. Heartbreak is a phenomenon almost everyone can relate to, this has further fueled the popularity of Kolaveri Di.

A rough cut version of the song was released online a few days back. The video features Anirudh, Dhanush and Shruti in the recording studio. Minus the fake sets and made-up expressions even the video of Kolaveri Di is interesting.

Dhanush likes to stick to his boy next door image in his films. He has sung the song with same innocence.
