The chartbuster song Rowdy Baby from Maari 2 has reached 1 billion views on Youtube and the filmmakers celebrated the event with the release of a specially designed poster featuring Dhanush. Sharing the poster on the production house, Wunderbar Films’ official Twitter handle, it was written, “Here is CDP to Celebrate Rowdy Baby.”

While Dhanush’s fans are elated over this, hardcore Sai Pallavi fans lament that the actor has been side-lined. Some of the Tweets questioning the actor’s absence in the CDP went on like this:
“WHERE IS SAI PALLAVI?? No offense to Dhanush sir but rowdy baby is a success largely due to Pallavi's dance and nothing else. Chindi logaan.”

“நாங்கள் ரவுடி பேபி பாடலில் ரசி
நாங்கள் ரவுடி பேபி பாடலில் ரசித்தது @Sai_Pallavi92 ஐ மட்டும்தான். அவருக்காக பார்த்தோம். அந்த நடனம் கொள்ளை அழகு! நயந்தாராவே வந்தாலும் அது போலெல்லாம் ஆட முடியாது. ஆனால் இன்று கொஞ்சம் கூட கூச்சம் இல்லாமல் அந்த வெற்றியை ஒருவர் மட்டும் அபகரித்துக் கொள்கின்றார்!— Ahsan Afthar (@AhsanAfthar98) November 19, 2020
“This DP should have included Sai Pallavi, Yuvan n Prabhudeva too. Just my humble opinion," read one tweet.
