Reports say that Akshay Kumar, like many others, became fan of 'Kolaveri di' and considering its popularity, he decided to acquire the rights of the Hindi version. On the other end, Shahrukh Khan also liked the song after Karan Johar praised the track on Twitter.
In the process, SRK approached Rajinikanth but little less he knew that Akki had sensibly contacted Dhanush through his associates and sealed the deal. 'Kolaveri di' is a Tamil track from the forthcoming movie 3. The song composed by newcomer Anirudh is written and crooned by Dhanush.
