Reports says that the close aides of Akshay Kumar has clarified to a leading daily about the Khiladi bagging the remake rights. As the Tamil song has already become a national hit, Akki found no point in buying the track. In fact, he has acquired the rights of a popular Telugu song for his forthcoming Hindi movie. It further adds that the Telugu song will be retuned with Hindi lyrics.
Earlier, it was believed that Akshay Kumar and Shahrukh Khan were in the race to bag the remake rights of 'Kolaveri di'. However, Akki, who contacted Dhanush through his associates, managed to seal 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.
