Six years ago, actor Dhanush released his hit song 'Why this Kolaveri Di' on Youtube and it became a viral sensation. Over the years, it has garnered over a record 172 million views and 1.4 million likes on YouTube.

However, a new record has now been set. Tollywood song 'Vachinde' from the film Fidaa was released in September 2018 and it has broken the records of 'Kolaveri Di' for the most number of views. 'Vachinde' has clocked over 173 million views and 418K likes on YouTube, beating Kolaveri Di's record by over a million views to become the highest viewed South Indian movie song on YouTube.
