‘Rowdy Baby’ notches up 200 million YouTube views

‘Rowdy Baby’, the hit from Maari 2, featuring the film’s lead actors Dhanush and Sai Pallavi, touched 200 million views on video-streaming platform YouTube on Wednesday.

Sai Pallavi’s song ‘Vachinde’ from the Telugu movie Fidaa has over 183 million views. ‘Rowdy Baby’ has overtaken Dhanush’s ‘Kolaveri Di’, which at present has over 175 million views on YouTube. ‘Rowdy Baby’ is thus a record for both the actors.

The song has also earned the distinction of making it to YouTube’s list of popular songs at number 4 in January this year.

Maari 2, directed by Balaji Mohan, released in December last year.

The song, pictured on the pair, was composed by Yuvan Shankar Raja and choreographed by actor Prabhu Deva.

The song became an instant hit and went viral soon owing to the dance moves of the actors, set to the peppy beat of the song sung by Dhee and Dhanush, who has also written the lyrics.

Congratulating the team behind the song, Dhanush tweeted on Wednesday: “Thank you Prabhu Deva sir. Thank you Jonny master. Thank u @thisisysr. Thank u @directormbalaji and team. Thank u Dhee for ur magnetic voice. Thank u and congratulations @Sai_Pallavi 92 on beating ur own record #vachinde. Thank u guys. For loving RB so much.”

Yuvan Shankar Raja too tweeted and thanked the team behind the film for the popularity of the song.
