Though Bollywood has been doing it very easily these days, striking the big 200 million mark on YouTube is something that is very special for every Tamil film fan out there. And now, Dhanush’s big chartbuster Rowdy Baby has gone past the milestone, adding more cream to the most viewed song in South India. The viral breakthrough of the song is proven thanks to the endless number of video surfacing platforms such as Helo and TikTok. With such a superb number achieved even though the video was put up 10 days after the release of Maari 2, one cannot help but imagine the height it would have scaled if it was actually used as a promotional material before the release of the film itself.
Dhanush acknowledged the feat this morning with a special tweet thanking the contributions from the two choreographers in Prabhu Deva and Johnny, music composer Yuvan Shankar Raja, director Balaji Mohan and his co-singer Dhee Venka. The actor specifically congratulated Sai Pallavi for beating her own record, which was held by the Telugu song Vachinde from Fidaa, which is now at 183 million views.
This is the second time round for Dhanush that he is seeing through a huge hit, after his magnificent Kolaveri Di in 2011 along with composer Anirudh, who made his debut with the track. The song achieved a worldwide reach, with many cover videos from countries like Spain, Canada and the likes breaking the internet.
