Mumbai: Tamil legendary actor Rajinikanth’s son-in-law Dhanush is certainly basking on the success of his chartbuster `Kolaveri Di` as it crosses over 8 mn mark on Facebook as one of the most shared songs on the social networking site.

However, Dhanush admits that the lyrics of the song has no meaning and is completely non-sense.

Talking to a daily, the elated national award winning actor said, “It feels nice when people are open with their praise for your work. I honestly didn`t think the song would be such a craze. This has made me realize that people universally want only simple lyrics and simpler tune from filmmakers.”

He believes that simple lyrics are what most people are looking for.

“My poor broken English lyrics, written in a silly tone, and borderline singing has proved to be advantageous for the success of this song.”

“I agree the lyrics is absolute nonsense and is written in Tanglish. That`s probably why people everywhere relate to it,” Dhanush added.

Dhanush is happy about the fact that his song is a roaring success across India and has been liked by stalwarts Amitabh Bachchan and his father-in-law Rajini as well.

“It was nice of Amitabh Bachchan to listen to our song and congratulate us for it. My father-in-law, Rajinikanth, is equally thrilled, and he is proud his daughter Aishwaryaa has come out of his shadow to make a name for herself,” said the actor.

And for those who think other songs in the film `3` are similar to `Kolaveri Di`, Dhanush said, “The other songs in the film are both poetic and simple. I understand that at times, lyrics should make sense.”
