A Pakistani from Lahore based in Riyadh, Choudhary uploaded his rendition on December 21. His version, unlike the original, which is about failed love, is based on sponsorship issues faced by expatriates, Gulf News reported.

The song from Tamil film 3 has been composed by Anirudh Ravichander.
"I am blessed that my debut song has gone global and feel privileged to be a part of this phenomenon called Kolaveri," Ravichander said.
"In fact I like many of the other versions more than the original now," he added.
