His first song "Why this Kolaveri" reached over 1 crore views in just 1 week on YouTube which by itself is a massive record. Turning out to be one of the most searched songs, the term 'Kolaveri' has even made its mark as the latest trend word.


Apart from the proletarian, peculiar yet fun "Tanglish" lyrics, what sets the song apart from other such released tracks is its catchy tune.
