Chaawat or Kaatuka Kanule?

Chaawat also begins with Radhikka’s character selling leaflets of her small business on a rickshaw, as Akshay follows her on a bike. They both exchange glances and Akshay kisses her on the forehead. The scene then shifts to Akshay and Radhikka tying the knot in a traditional Maharashtrian wedding. The two fall in love and help each other’s ambitions. Composed by G.V. Prakash Kumar, Chaawat is penned by Manoj Muntashir Shukla while the song is choreographed by Ganesh Acharya.

Kaattu Payale also detailed the growing attraction between Suriya and Aparna Balamurali’s characters in Soorarai Pottru. The song’s Telugu version, Kaatuka Kanule, was a huge hit during its release, meanwhile the Telugu version went on to garner 100 million views on YouTube. Soorarai Pottru also received widespread acclaim upon release and went on to win five National Awards, including Best Feature Film.
