In yet another viral story this year, a Rakesh Unni, a rubber plantation worker hailing from Kerala won the hearts of the people after he had done his own rendition of the hit “Unnai Kaanadha” song from Kamal Haasan’s 2013 blockbuster, Vishwaroopam, which was originally sung by Shankar Mahadevan.
Rakesh Unni’s rendition was first brought to the attention of Shankar Mahadevan, who requested the Twitterati to let him know any details about the budding and talented singer.
