Viral song Why This Kolaveri Di now has its Arabic version, which is already a hit on Youtube.

Picking up the baton in the region is Faez Zahoor Choudhary, whose Saudi version of the popular hit song has been heard 842,207 times on YouTube till now.

A Pakistani from Lahore based in Riyadh, Choudhary uploaded his rendition on December 21. His version, unlike the original, which is about failed love, is based on sponsorship issues faced by expatriates, Gulf News reported.

South Indian actor Dhanush has sung the original version of the song in Tanglish (a portmanteau of Indian regional language Tamil and English).

The song from Tamil film 3 has been composed by Anirudh Ravichander.

“I am blessed that my debut song has gone global and feel privileged to be a part of this phenomenon called Kolaveri,” Ravichander said.

“In fact I like many of the other versions more than the original now,” he added.
