The song, a homage to cricketer Sachin Tendulkar [ Images ] goes, One plus one-u two-u two-u, if not Sachin who-u who-u...'
Dhanush, a big Tendulkar fan, wrote the song as a campaign for an energy drink.
Dhanush will be singing in Hindi movies too. Director Aanand Rai, who has signed the actor to play the lead in Raanjhanaa, has asked Dhanush to sing at least one song in the film. Though initially he begged off, sources close to the project say Dhanush has agreed to sing a folk song of Uttar Pradesh [ Images ] for his Varanasi character, which promises to be as catchy as Amitabh Bachchan's [ Images ] Khaike paan banaras wala in Don.
Dhanush still calls himself a reluctant singer.
"I really don't think I will be singing much," he says. "I'm an actor by profession, singer by default. Boost, the energy drink, approached me to do a song for Sachin Tendulkar, which I happily did. I've treated the song as an introduction to a mass hero. It has accessible lyrics like Kolaveri di."
About singing for his Hindi debut Dhanush says, "Whatever my director asks me to do, I will do."
