The Hollywood film, The Avengers, which has also been dubbed in Telugu and Tamil in India, will now get its own Southern theme song. UTV Motion Pictures that is marketing and distributing the film in the country, has decided to launch Telugu and Tamil versions of the film’s Hindi theme song, ‘Hello Andhero…’, which has been composed by the popular band Agnee.

Shikha Kapur, senior vice president marketing, UTV, says, “We are really excited seeing the collection and the buzz around the Tamil and Telugu dubbed versions of the Hollywood movie. ‘Hello Andhero...’ as a song has worked wonders for us and there is a demand that we should release Tamil and Telugu versions of it in the Southern markets.”

Filmmaker Abbas Tyrewala who had written the Hindi lyrics of the song, may also be associated with the translations, but nothing has been finalised yet. “We are looking at how to go about this,” says Kapur.
