Friday 2 December 2011
Before i post songs to my Hollywood/Bollywood Blog i must research, so here is an interesting read... this song brings a smile to my face for silly reasons... better than hearing or watching Vidyas Oh la la! I find it so cheap... anyway... now for some facts...

This song was initially leaked on the Internet, and the makers, having noticed its popularity, decided to go for an official release.

The lyrics portray the feelings of an average Indian boy, who has failed in love, or who has some problems with his girl.

The song crossed a crore (10 million) hits on YouTube on 30 November, 2011.

The song is suitable only for bathroom singers. Its simplistic and rustic beats make it more catchy to the commoner.
