This song is a Tamil and English mix and within a month of its official release on Nov 16, 2011 it has become the most searched YouTube video in India.

The most popular online video giant YouTube has awarded the video with a Recently Most Popular Award (Gold Medal) because in a very short time span, it has received extremely large number of hits. When I am writing this article, the current statistics shows that the video has received 25,439,529 hits.

Why this Kolaveri, Di? is a song in the to-be-released Tamil film 3 which will be released in 2012.

The exclusive video was shot during the song recording. It shows the music director Anirudh Ravichander, writer and singer of the song Dhanush, Shruti Hassan, Aishwarya and Sound Engineer Sivakumar.


This song is also polular among the non-Tamil junta due to its English words and the light-heart theme. In this song the singer is featured as a drunk Indian boy rejected by his girlfriend, asking her in a very light-hearted-way that why she hurt him this way.
