The tune was done in twenty minutes - Dhanush
Last Week Dhanush performed live in Mumbai, his first stage performance. Says the actor shyly, "Earlier I had sung a song for my brother filmmaker Selvaraghavan's audio release. That's my only live performance so far. I wasn't nervous about performing this time. If I was a professional singer, I'd worry. But I'm an amateur, so it didn't matter if I went off-key."
Now this week Dhanush took Kolkata by storm. Says Dhanush humbly, "Kolkata was a great experience. It was an overwhelming experience."
Next, Dhanush will perform live in Delhi. Says the actor, "God has been very kind to me. I had a great year. I couldn't have asked for more. Now I'm just going to focus on shooting the song for my wife's film. Let's see where it goes from there. It will be shot in the first week of January."
Dhanush's wife, Aishwarya, is directing him in 3. And the song 'Kolaveri Di' is already a big hit. "It seems the song has become bigger than the film. But the film has a solid and novel script. Once people see the film, they'll see the song as just a part of the narration."
Dhanush is refreshingly matter-of-fact about 'Kolaveri'. "It's just a song, just a phase. It will pass. I am one of those people who don't know how to speak proper English. But I manage. Speaking the English language was initially a huge problem for me, so I knew how to connect with people like me. I knew what words to choose so that they connect with people who are not fluent in English."
Dhanush has no illusions about the quality of the lyrics. "It's not poetry. Whatever silly words came to my mind I used it in the song. It's just like any composition, nothing special. A group of us gen-next kids me, Shruti Haasan, my wife Aishwarya and the composer Annirudh were open to ideas. The tune was done in twenty minutes. As soon as I heard the song, the words simply came to my mind spontaneously. I wanted the words to be understood by everybody regardless of whether they know English or not."
