Dhanush’s Kolaveri lecture at IIM Ahmedabad
Thanks to his hugely popular and record-breaking Why this Kolaveri di…. number from his upcoming film 3, actor Dhanush was invited by the management of the Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad to give a lecture to its students on how to garner success and how he felt at having amassed such a huge success with this song.
For starters, the said song has been penned and sung by Dhanush himself and is part of his film titled 3, which also marks the directorial debut of his wife Aishwarya. The song has topped music charts nationwide and has left purists fuming at the lyrics, which have a liberal does of Tamil and English words. Why the song became such a huge hit still remains a mystery to many!
The song’s success paved the way for the Prime Minister inviting Dhanush to join a dinner he hosted in honour of the visiting Japanese Prime Minister more than a month ago. The song has now taken Dhanush to IIM, one of the country’s premier management institutions, where he lectured on the backdrop to the song and how it became such a huge hit.
Prior to his visit to Ahmeadabad, Dhanush had twitted that he would be going to Ahmedabad soon. “Gearing up to make my speech at IIM institute ahmedabad tom.I don kno good english.but who cares,I’m an indian.not english. Hehe. God bless” he had tweeted. As many as 150 students studying in various disciplines of film-making and related fields took part in the interactive session. The students queried the actor on many occasions for which he was ready with the answer.
Later, Dhanush has tweeted that “IIM-A is beautiful. Both d pple and place. Had a great fun session and students asked such sensible questions. It was a blast god bless”
