After replying to the official Twitter account of Mumbai Indians for using his song “Verithanam Varithanam” for one of their videos, Vivek Lyricist received various kind of reactions from his followers and Twitter users. One of a twitter user named as “Aravind” who claimed himself as a die hard fan of Virat Kohli through his bio, mocked Vivek for his reply to Mumbai Indians. In reply, the lyric writer trolled back the fan by mentioning his idol’s RCB team which initiated a war between the fans of the three IPL teams, Mumbai, CSK and Bangalore.
The most awaited IPL tournament is all set to get inaugurated in less than 20 days amidst the COVID 19 crisis. Almost all the players of every team have reached UAE and are self quarantined to participate in the tournament. As all the preparations are being made in full swing by the management, Twitter banter between IPL teams also started taking place to keep the fans engaged.
The defending champions Mumbai Indians, on 2nd September uploaded a video in their official twitter account, highlighting the special moments of their team from last year IPL season. The video showed the perfect yorkers of Malinga, Rohit Sharma’s effortless batting ability and also their fielding excellence. The song they used for the video compilation is A.R Rahman’s recent chartbuster “Verithanam, Verithanam” from Tamil movie “Bigil” directed by Atlee. The song was sung by our very own “Thalapathy” and Tamil based twitter users got surprised on seeing a MI using the song for one of their videos.

Along with the fans and the official twitter handle of Chennai Super Kings, Lyricist Vivekh who penned lyrics for the song “Verithanam” said that he won’t give his song to a team which doesn’t have Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar. He also requested CSK to do a “Marana” edit as reply to MI’s video.
Here’s his reply :

This tweet from Vivek triggered the fans of Mumbai Indians, Chennai Super Kings and Royal challengers Bangalore to involve in verbal spat with each other. Some even threatened the Lyric writer with abusive worlds.
Reacting to the ruckus, Vivek posted a clarification tweet saying that it is a tweet posted for fun. He believed that those fans will come out of social media life and to start accepting things. He asked them not to judge others. To those who threatened him with bad words, the lyricist gave a laugh as reply.
