Dance choreographed composed by Prabhu Deva, the song had Dhanush and Sai Pallavi performing for the song. With Yuvan’s enthusiastic music, Dhee and Dhanush sung the song only to attract a billion views.

We are honoured that this is the first South Indian song to reach 1 billion views. Our whole team thanks you from the heart “ said Dhanush in his tweet while reaction to the achievement.

Taking to twitter, actress Sai Pallavi, wrote a tweet thanking the audience for making it a huge hit. “Thank you all for owning Rowdy baby 1 Billion love and counting” he tweet read.

Meanwhile, Wunderbar films, the production house which produced the film Maari 2, came up with a design to celebrate the achievement. In their design, we could see Dhanush holding a virtual guitar and celebrating the victory. They declared the design as the common display picture for fans to celebrate Rowdy baby’s one billion views.

This poster didn’t go well with the fans who made the song a huge hit. They felt that Sai Pallavi also did her part to make the song look pleasing and wanted her to grab a space in the common dp. Few of them said that Prabhu Deva and Yuvan also deserve a place in the poster that it meant for fans.
“Someone send me the link of Rowdy Baby that only has Dhanush dancing. The sexism that’s reeking and leaking through this tweet.” said a follower whereas another aone wrote “WHERE IS SAI PALLAVI?? No offense to Dhanush sir but rowdy baby is a success largely due to Pallavi’s dance and nothing else.”. Many felt bad for not adding singer Dhee’s name in the tweet as well. It is notable that Wunderbar films belongs to actor Dhanush himself.
Check out some of their reactions :
As much as I love Dhanush, If these CDPs even matter, Sai Pallavi deserves to be in this too❤ https://t.co/2UV8FJC7Q4— Raunaq Mangottil (@RaunaqMangottil) November 18, 2020
A Tamil song reaching 1 Billion Views is such a celebratory occasion to the Team and the fans who lapped up the song but no u had to make it problematic by excluding Sai Pallavi's pic in both CDP and the announcement post🤦♂️ Shame on u @dhanushkraja n @wunderbarfilms https://t.co/e6uaoZ0AXl— The Lost Soul!!

Sai Pallavi isn't in the picture, and Dhee isn't even in the mentions. They were the core which made the song get 1 billion. https://t.co/fQQqsw9e9M— Michael Scott 🇲🇾 (@tharounsharma) November 19, 2020

No offense to Dhanush sir but rowdy baby is a success largely due to Pallavi's dance and nothing else. Chindi logaan.
Its like project manager solely taking credit for the whole project.— MACCHU (@macchuu) November 18, 2020

I should check my eyesight. I’m unable to find @Sai_Pallavi92 in this? Vera yaarkachum theriyidha?— Sajin M S (@ComradeSajin) November 18, 2020
