Fans unhappy with shabby ‘Kolaveri Di’ concert

Zeenews Bureau

New Delhi: When a song or a star becomes an overnight sensation, everyone tries to bask in their reflected glory and ride on their success. At least that seems to be the case with a Bangalore based event management company.

The company recently organized a ‘Kolaveri Concert’ and promised the public that Dhanush would be performing. What they didn’t say that even though the concert was being called ‘Kolaveri Concert’, Dhanush would only perform in the fag end for only 10 minutes.

The fans of the southern star were kept waiting for nearly three hours and sources claim that the entire concert was organized in a shabby manner.

The fans, of course were left fuming and interestingly, Dhanush himself was unaware of what was going on. In fact, the actor was surprised to know that the concert was called ‘Kolaveri Concert’.

Speaking to a daily, the actor said, "I was unaware of the way the event was organized and the concert was a complete mess. There was a major miscommunication between our team and the organizers. I even tweeted a few days before the performance saying it was not going to be a full-length concert. But I don`t want to blame anyone for this. I thoroughly enjoyed the 10 minutes I was given on the stage and was overwhelmed by the support from my fans. I hope I`ve not disappointed them."

Meanwhile, one of the organizers tried to clarify and said the delay in concert happened because of security reasons. "We requested Dhanush to perform for 10 minutes on the stage and he did just that. We couldn`t start the performance early as we received threatening calls from people from the Kannada film industry. They asked us as why we had not got Sandalwood stars to perform at the concert. However, we did invite a few people from the Kannada film industry to watch the performance. Keeping safety issues in mind, we delayed the programme. It was not completely our fault,” said the organizer.

Amidst confusion and clarification, it were the fans who had to wait long to catch a glimpse of their favourite star.
