When the 'Aalaporan Thamizhan' song in Mersal was released in August last year, the response turned out to be phenomenal and overwhelming.
Six months later, Aalaporaan Thamizhan’s popularity from Mersal directed by Atlee under the Thenandal Studios Limited banner hasn’t simmered down one bit and that is evident with the number of views the video song has stacked up on YouTube.
Composed by A. R. Rahman with lyrics penned by Vivek Velmurugan, the song sung by Kailash Kher, Sathya Prakash, Deepak, and Pooja Vaidyanath has gone on to cross over 20 million views and just goes on to show the kind of impact it has had on Tamilians world over.

The Aalaporaan Thamizhan song also marks the fourth time that a video song of Vijay has gone on to hit record number of views.
The Nilaayo song once again from Bairavaa follows suit at the second place.
We can say 'Aalaporaan Thamizhan' has a fair shot at eclipsing the record number of views of these songs in the coming days.
