Anirudh Ravichandran GENUINE Words about Pawan Kalyan | #PSPK25 | #HBDAnirudh | Telugu Mirchi
Back in 2011, a Tamil song that went viral pan India, much before Baahubali did; the song was called ‘Why this Kolaveri di’. Just like its lyrics, the song was heard with a religious vengeance too. A leaked of the version of Dhanush singing the Tanglish lyrics redefined what viral meant, pushing the young, lanky music composer under the spotlight. The song was not a musical masterpiece, but something about the simplicity of ‘Kolaveri’ struck a chord with the audience and that’s the USP of Anirudh. The music composer has an impeccable radar that perfectly catches the pulse of the audience. While many were waiting to see if Anirudh would be a one hit wonder, he backed up Kolaveri with an even better album for his first film, 3. As he celebrates his birthday, here are a few albums that were landmarks in Anirudh’s musical life.
After a dream debut, there was a lot of pressure on Anirudh to perform and Ethirneechal was a perfect answer. The beginning of the Sivakarthikeyan-Anirudh combo, Ethirneechal was produced by Dhanush. The album was an ideal mix of genres; from the anthemish “Ethirneechal adi” to lovely “Velicha poove”.
