Award-winning poet and lyricist Javed Akhtar has slammed Why This Kolaveri Di, the song from the film 3 which has become a rage across the country.
KOLAVARI-D. Every one is praising the robes but the emporer is naked. Tune ordinary ,singing substandard.words an insult to sensibility," he posted on Twitter.
The song, which has everyone hooked, including legendary actors Amitabh Bachchan and Rajinikanth, failed to impress the master lyricist.
"Some get over awed by success but to me it is only the quality that matters . Ideally what is desirable is success with quality," he posted on Twitter.
The video of Why This Kolaveri Di has crossed over 1 crore views on YouTube. The Time Magazine website, The Huffington Post and the BBC have reported on it.
Several Bollywood stars and prominent personalities have been raving about it. The song has been sung by National Award winning actor Dhanush for the upcoming movie 3, directed by his wife Aishwarya. The music has been scored by Anirudh Ravichander and the simple, nonsensical lyrics composed by Dhanush himself.
