“He is a very dear friend of mine, Dhanush. Very famous and very prominent actor from Chennai. Off late, unfortunately they only seem to know him because of ‘Kolavari Di’ but, he has done great work down there. He is a wonderful actor,” said the 35-year-old actor.
“Kolaveri Di” has received over 17 million hits on Youtube till now and Abhishek terms it as one of the greatest hits of the year.
“I think it’s outstanding and I think it’s wonderful because it has been made by two very dear friends of mine, Dhanush and his wife Aishwarya. I think it’s a fantastic song. He is a very talented guy and Anirudh, the music director has done a great job. I wish them all the best. It’s one of the greatest songs of the year,” said Abhishek who is awaiting his next release “Players” by director duo Abbas-Mustan.
“Players”, which is releasing Jan 6, also stars Bobby Deol, Bipasha Basu, Neil Nitin Mukesh and Sonam Kapoor.
