Javed Akhtar expresses dislike for Dhanush’s ‘Why this kolaveri di’ song

Unlike the Bachchans and the rest of B-towners, Don 2 lyricist, Javed Akhtar rubbishes the popular song

The Why this kolaveri di song from actor Dhanush’s Tamil film 3 has become one of the most popular songs on the internet. The song’s popularity can be gauged by the fact that every other day a new version of the same song is being uploaded and shared by its fans. One of the first in Bollywood to appreciate the song was superstar Amitabh Bachchan and once he had approved of it, the rest simply followed suit. But the song which has now crossed 13 million hits on Youtube hasn’t gone down well with lyricist Javed Akhtar who didn’t mince words expressing his disregard for the song. He posted a message on Twitter, “Kolaveri-D. Every one is praising the robes but the emperor is naked. Tune ordinary, singing substandard, words an insult to sensibility.” The fans of the ‘Kolaveri’ song didn’t take kindly to Akhtar’s feedback on the song. In response to Akhtar, one of them tweeted, “Plz… I liked “Kolavari Di” n song is a new youth anthem… n “Meri Laundry Ka Ek Bill” remember ?? nana na na na?? In defense, the poet tweeted, “What kind of logic is this even if all my songs are trash, meaningless, unbearable how does that make this Kolaveri D good?” Wethinks Javed saab is simply overreacting. The song was made for a lark and has been liked by people who apparently are not highly inclined towards life-changing literary work.
