Legendary lyricist Javed Akhtar has slammed Dhanush's sleeper hit
song 'Kolaveri Di' by calling it as an ordinary song. He believes
that the tune, the words and singing are below standard.
He took Twitter bandwagon, like most of the celebrities, to
express his views on 'Kolaveri di'. He wrote, “Every one is
praising the robes but the emperor is naked. Tune ordinary, singing
substandard. words an insult to sensibility… Some get over awed by
success but to me it is only the quality that matters."
He further adds, “Ideally what is desirable is success with
quality Even If bad taste is in the cover of “personal taste" at
least I don"t find acceptable.(sic)"
It did not take much time for the fans of Dhanush and 'Kolaveri
di' track to abuse him for his statement. Reacting to those, he
tweeted, “Its a barrage of comments about my comment on KOLA...some
are calling me jealous, even abusing me, others praising me for
belling the cat."
He is probably first celebrity to criticise the song, which has
become a rage among the youths not only in Tamil Nadu but all
across the nation. 'Kolaveri di...' track from the forthcoming
movie 3 is written and crooned by Dhanush and newcomer
Anirudh has composed the music.
