Released last year, ‘Thalapathy’ Vijay’s Mersal alongside Nithya Menen, Samantha and Kajal Aggarwal directed by Atlee under the Thenandal Studios Limited banner with music by Academy Award-winning composer A. R Rahman went on to become a blockbuster at the box office.

Among the many highlights in Mersal was the “Aalaporan Thamizhan” song composed by A. R. Rahman, which became an instant chartbuster and still has a strong reception among fans even after a year.

Meanwhile, “Aalaporan Thamizhan” has now become the most viewed Tamil song till date on YouTube with 57 million views.

The song from Mersal has now zoomed past the “Don’u Don’u Don’u” track from Dhanush’s Maari, which now stands at the second spot.

It must be noted that although the first video for “Why This Kolaveri Di” song from 3 stands at 153 million views, it remains in a way to be a promo track for the film.

It now remains to be seen the number of views the “Aalaporan Thamizhan” song goes on to garner from this point on.
