Uttar Pradesh, Jan 17: Ahead of the upcoming UP assembly elections, Congress will now use the viral super hit 'Kolaveri Di' to connect with the youths.

Reports reveal that Congress is trying to acquire the copyrights to the song and so as to adopt it as their second theme song.

Congress had earlier cashed in on AR Rehman's famous 'Jai Ho' and will still use it as their theme song and is exploring the possibilities of using Dhanush's Kolaveri di.

It is also reported that superstar Dhanush objected to the offer first and wanted to have a look at the Congress' version of the song, but Dhanush was relieved after actor-parliamentarian Raj Babbar convinced him and talks were on to finalise a deal.

"It’s news to me," said Dhanush in an interview to the Deccan Chronicle expressing that he was not aware of any such thing.

"I am not sure they have spoken to Sony yet because they are the copyright-holders," he said.

On being asked if he minded that the song was a part of a party’s election campaign, he said, "It is not a political song."

Reports reveal that while Jai Ho would be focused on Rahul Gandhi, Kolaveri di would be used to throw light on the party's good governance and target rivals.
