In the 90s, music composer AR Rahman was exclusively Tamil Nadu's blue-eyed boy though his tunes had already started becoming popular in Bollywood. Now, ARR has achieved unimaginable success, bagging not one but two of the coveted Oscar awards.
One of Rahman's chartbusters from the 90s was "Take it easy, Urvasi" from "Kadhalan". The song, sung by ARR, Suresh Peters, and Shahul Hameed was a superhit, with its playful lyrics instantly appealing to the youth at that time.
Now, Rahman has asked his fans to help him "update" the lyrics of the song. After all, "Oliyum Olliyum currentu pona, take it easy policy!" was certainly true for those times but not anymore. He's been careful to avoid controversies though - no demonetisation, no Hillary or Trump!
ARR fans have responded in full gusto. Some suggestions:
