Sivakarthikeyan made his debut as a producer with Kanaa that starred Aishwarya Rajesh, Sathyaraj and Darshan in the lead roles. SK turned a producer for his best friend and lyricist/singer Arunraja Kamaraj, who made his directorial debut with Kanaa. The film received a very positive response among the people of Tamil Nadu and emerged successful at the box office. Critics were also quite impressed with this film for its top class performances and beautiful emotions. Not just the film, even the songs became a huge hit among the fans and it in fact gave the film its initial breakthrough before the release.

Special mention to the fun-filled ‘Vaayadi Petha Pulla’ song which was sung by Sivakarthikeyan and his cute little daughter, Aaradhana. The father-daughter duo won the hearts of the Tamil people with this beautiful composition. Similarly, ‘Othaiyadi Pathayila’ is another foot-tapping number that became viral on social media. The song was widely used in TikTok and other entertainment apps. The youth audience loved Anirudh’s rendition and the energy of this song. Having said that, both these songs have crossed 100 million plus views on YouTube, thereby creating a new record.

Yes! Kanaa has become the first ever Tamil film to have got two songs with 100 million+ views on YouTube. While Vaayadi Petha Pulla’s lyric video (ft. Aaradhana and Sivakarthikeyan) has crossed a staggering 175 million views, the romantic dance number ‘Othaiyadi Pathayila’ video song (ft. Darshan and Aishwarya Rajesh) has crossed 100 million views. Additionally, it has also been revealed that the album of Kanaa (5 songs) have got a massive 500 million + streams (includes being played on all audio streaming platforms - Wynk, Gaana, Spotify, YouTube, etc.)

Reacting to this great news, Sivakarthikeyan took to his Twitter space to share his excitement. He shared a special video to thank the film’s music director Dhibu Ninan Thomas and the team of Kanaa who were behind this massive feat. SK wrote, “Proud and elated to share u tat #Kanaa is the first ever album in Tamil to hv two songs wit 100 Million+ views. here is a small video of gratitude #AstonishingTwo100MSongsForKanaa #Massive500MStreamsForKanaa”.
