• Congress to make use of Kolaveri Di?

    18th January 2012

    Looks like, Congress is taking the filmi route to reach out to the masses. After attracting the voters with Jai Ho, the national party is now looking at Dhanush's 'Why this Kolaveri di...' to woo the people in view of Uttar Pradesh Assembly elections.

    Leading Hindi daily newspaper Dainik Jagran reported the Congress management was trying to acquire the copyright to 'kolaveri di...' to adopt it as the party’s second theme song.

    The newspaper claimed Dhanush had raised some objections and wanted to have a first look at the song being prepared by Congress, but actor-politician Raj Babbar convinced him and negotiations were on to finalise a deal.

    However, Dhanush has said he is unaware of any such attempt. 'I am not sure they have spoken to Sony yet because they are the copyright-holders,' the actor was quoted as saying.

    The Hindi daily quoted sources as saying that while 'Jai Ho' focused on Rahul Gandhi, 'kolaveri di' would be used to highlight good governance and the secularism plank of Congress and target rivals.
