Dhanush‘s ode ‘Sachin Anthem‘ to the cricket legend was removed on YouTube in the wee hours yesterday morning (February 10) by JR Mediaworks. After the video was restored, Dhanush and Simbu took to twitter and took a dig at one another.
It is said that JR Mediaworks claimed the copyrights for this initiative by Boost as they composed a similar tune quite some time back, following which the video was removed on YouTube.
Later the ‘Sachin Anthem‘ team tracked down the person who claimed for the copyrights on a social networking website and approached them after which the copyright claim was withdrawn and the video was available again on YouTube.
Now what’s interesting is that the one who claimed the copyrights of this song is a friend of Simbu‘s close associate, which was obviously noted by the ‘Sachin Anthem‘ team while tracking down the person. Dhanush took at dig at Simbu and wrote “Some people smile at others’ misery; I smile right back at them for not knowing the purpose of being a human being. It’s called love”. Oh, and Simbu‘s currently working on Love Anthem for world peace.
Pat came the response from Simbu, “Copy adikaradhula Chinaava vida bayangarama irrukangaley, success introduces you to the world but defeat introduces the world to you! Actually, none of us in this world have an enemy”.
But what really remains a question unanswered is why the video was initially removed on YouTube for no video is removed without an authentic proof, and that too if it comes from the ‘Kolaveri‘ boy who received the YouTube Gold Award!
The makers of the song are expected to clear air on this front shortly…
