The song has been originally sung by Shankar Mahadevan and composed by the famous trio Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy, as per 

Sharing the video on Twitter, Shankar wrote, "This is called fruit of labour!
When we hear this, it just makes me feel so so proud of our country that produces so much talent and is so rich in culture. Who is this guy???
How can I trace him?
Need help & would like to work with him."

 
Not Just Mahadevan, even Gopi Sundar has become his fan. Both Shankar and Gopi were on a mission to trace him and record a song with him.
