One would easily pose a question that Dhanush's 'Kolaveri di', which was released a few weeks ago, is yet to be retuned in other language films and declaring that it has beaten 'Appidu podu' could be not right. But the point which is being taken into consideration is the time period that the songs consumed to gain popularity. While Vijay's song, which was released in 2003, started attracting the non-Tamil audiences only after 2005. Dhanush's number needed seven days to garner the nation's attention.
However, putting aside the fact of the time period, 'Kolaveri di' song is far from becoming an all-time chartbuster number. It is because the track is yet to be shot and if the visuals fail to meet the audience expectations, then Vijay's 'Appidu podu' would remain the best ever number, which took the nation by storm, till date.
Meanwhile, Vijay's charbuster song 'Appidu podu...' is now being retuned for a forthcoming Hindi film, which is produced by actor Sonu Sood. The original composer, Vidya Sagar himself is tuning the Bollywood song.
Off the record
The other South song to become a rage in the recent years is 'Ringa ringa..' from the Telugu movie, Arya 2.
