Looks like Delhiites are all set to usher in 2012 with Kolaveri Di. As plans for New Year’s Eve bashes get underway, DJs in the Capital are also busy preparing their song list for the big night, and most say they’ll be playing the Tamil hit several times through the night!
“I feel the biggest and most asked for song on December 31 is going to be Kolaveri Di. It’s a very different song and has a very new flavour for most North Indians, so I’m sure people will keep asking for encores,” says DJ Rahul Bisht from Buzz, MGF Mall, Saket.
DJ Sumit Sethi, who will be playing with his band Buzz Funk at Club Sirrocco, has a remixed Punjabi version of Kolaveri Di all set. He adds that the other big song of the night is likely to be Oh La La from The Dirty Picture.
“With the way the song Kolaveri Di has become a rage, it won’t be wrong to say that it will be the most requested song this time,” says DJ Monty, who will be playing at Jynxxx.
“Undoubtedly, Kolaveri Di will be the most requested song this year,” says DJ Rahul from FIO Country and Kitchen Bar.
“There’s no question that Dhanush’s song will be the big hit of the year,” says DJ Cheenu, who will be playing at Shroom.
Interestingly, every DJ has a different track in mind for the countdown to 2012.
“At 12, I am planning to play a special edition of countdown with lots of drums and percussions which is going to be a surprise element for everyone,” says DJ Ankush of LAP.
DJ Puru of Hard Rock Cafe says his new year track is Salaame from Dhoom 2.
“At midnight, I plan to play Give Me Everything Tonight by Pitbull, it’s a favourite with the guests,” says DJ Khushi of Rockman.
“At 12, I will be playing, Save The World Swedish House Mafia. That song really gets the crowds going,” says DJ Sandy, who will be playing at Manajsa.
DJ Rahul adds that at 12 he plans to play Chammak Challo from RA.One. “It’s the most groovy song of the year and it totally suits the mood of the hour,” he says.
South Indian actor-singer Dhanush, who shot to fame with his song Kolaveri Di, is allegedly charging Rs15 lakh to sing just this one song at events.
“We approached him to sing the song at an upcoming event and he demanded Rs15 lakh! This is more than the money a popular Bollywood actor had asked us for
coming to the same event,” said the source.
The song has made the actor such a household name that he now plans to launch his directorial Bollywood career with actor Hrithik Roshan.
