Abhishek Bachchan feels sad that his National Award winning friend Dhanush has only gained popularity after his ‘Kolaveri Di’ song that has garnered close to 18 million hits till date.
“He is a very dear friend of mine, Dhanush. Very famous and very prominent actor from Chennai. Off late, unfortunately they only seem to know him because of `Kolaveri Di` but, he has done great work down there. He is a wonderful actor,” said Abhishek Bachchan.
Like everyone else Junior Bachchan also can’t stop raving about the ‘Kolaveri Di’ song.
“I think it’s outstanding and I think it’s wonderful because it has been made by two very dear friends of mine, Dhanush and his wife Aishwarya. I think it’s a fantastic song. He is a very talented guy and Anirudh, the music director has done a great job. I wish them all the best. It’s one of the greatest songs of the year,” he said.
Dhanush had previously won National Award for his tremendous performance in Tamil Drama movie ‘Aadukalam’ that was directed by Veteran director Vetrimaaran, who won National Award of Best Director and Best Screenplay for the same. The movie won six National Awards in total.
