Highlight Story


Kolaveri Di might have created new records in the world of music, but the man behind the success of the song, Dhanush is not able to reap any monetray benefit from the song. Surprised? Well, apparently the south sensation had sold the rights for Kolaveri to Sony Music for a very small amount, reports Subhash K Jha for Mid Day.

Not only the money, Dhanush can't do anything about the numerous version of the sond that are doing rounds, according to the tabloid.

"I can't release any version of Kolaveri without Sony's approval. And I'll have to share every version of the song with them. So essentially I'll get paid only for my singing. Like the Tamil version, the Hindi version of Kolaveri is with Sony Music. There's nothing I can do about it," Dhanush confirms to the daily.

Why Dhanush didn't keep the rights
"Who knew the song would go so far? But it's okay. I don't regret it. I am content with what I've got from this song," Dhanush shared with the tabloid.

Dhanush in the meanwhile is planning his own music company. Great going Dhanush!
