Singer Srinivas livid over AR Rahman/ Mei Nigara slander!

24 starring Suriya, Samantha Ruth Prabhu and Nithya Menen in the lead is a 2016 sci-fi action drama, that had AR Rahman for music. 7 years ago, the movie released in theaters on May 6 and a video review by a Tamil YouTuber left many music fans livid even at that point. The YouTuber, who is a well recognized PR personality in the Tamil film circles, and has now even acted in small roles in movies, claims in his review of the 24 movie that AR Rahman's music is what brings the movie's pace down.

He then goes on to blasphemously add that the excellently crafted Mei Nigara [He doesn't pay enough attention to remember the name of the song], should have been replaced with a 'Kuthu song' with local Chennai lingo. Mei Nigara with vocals by Sid Sriram, Sanah Moidutty and Jonita Gandhi and lyrics by Madan Karky, interestingly is one of the most well received numbers from the 24 album among avid music listeners.
