New Delhi [India], Jan. 13 : Whenever you think, this is it, music maestro A.R. Rahman comes up with something that again makes you go gaga! So does his latest version of popular track 'Urvasi Urvasi,' from Prabhu Deva-starrer 1994-flick 'Kadhalan.' Now what's so special about this new Tamil-track? The 50-year-old musician left no socio-political issue to be mentioned in the reprised lyrics- from Donald Trump's victory to demonetised India.
Some of the lyrics go like this: "Hillary Clinton Thoothu Poonal, Take it easy policy (If Hillary Clinton looses, take it easy policy) Donald Trump president aanal,Take it easy policy (If Donald Trump becomes president, take it easy policy) Ainooru ruba sella poonal, Take it easy policy (If 500 notes becomes useless, take it easy policy) Aaiyaram ruba sella poonal, Take it easy policy (If 1,000 notes becomes useless, take it easy policy) Uploaded by MTV India on its Twitter handle, as a part of MTV Unplugged, the song went viral in sometime.
Along with the video, the handle wrote, "Remember when @arrahman crowdsourced new lyrics from YOU for a reimagined version of Urvasi Urvasi? Well, HERE IT IS! And it's GENIUS." The new version features Rahman with Suresh Peters and composer Ranjit Barot.
The Oscar-winning composer, on December 1, last year, had asked his fans to contribute fresh lyrics for the song and upon receiving more than a 1,000 comments on his Facebook page, he picked up handful of them.
"Dear friends, I'm trying to rearrange 'Take it Easy Urvasi' for a performance and wish to update the Charanams.
Feel free to contribute.. Ofcourse please do leave out and avoid any reference to Hilary Clinton, Donald Trump or the currency situation for now and try to come up with something interesting (and) humorous in the same scaling of the original Tamil version," he wrote.
Although initially he asked fans to avoid comments on Trump and Clinton, looks like he himself could not resist using them too, in this quirky number.
