After Dhanush and Sai Pallavi’s ‘Rowdy Baby’ video song from Maari 2 hit new records, director Balaji Mohan on Saturday released the making video of the popular song.
In the making video, the director is seen speaking about the song and efforts that were put in for the final output that grabbed outstanding response.
The song was composed by Yuvan Shankar Raja and sung by Dhanush and Dhee, the sister of composer Santhosh Narayanan. It was choreographed by Prabhu Deva. Dhanush penned the lyrics for the song as well.
“Both Sai Pallavi and Dhanush are excellent dancers. I had the confidence that they would be able to match what Prabhu Deva choreographed,” Balaji says in the video.
Balaji Mohan took to Twitter to announce the release of the making video. “Making Video of #RowdyBaby @dhanushkraja @thisisysr @PDdancing @Sai_Pallavi92 @AlwaysJani @omdop @amaranart @editor_prasanna @vasukibhaskar @VfxBricks @vinod_offl @divomovies #Maari2,” he tweeted along with a link to the video.

The video song was released on YouTube on January 2 and was met with many accolades with several praising Sai Pallavi for her dance moves. It set a new record with 100 million views in just 16 days, replacing many box-office success video songs. The song also went on to reach a total of 17.9 crore views (179 million) crossing the number of views of the hit song ‘Kolaveri Di’ from Dhanush’s film ‘3’.
Maari 2 is a sequel to the 2015 film Maari and featured Dhanush and Sai Pallavi in the lead roles. Malayalam actor Tovino Thomas was seen portraying a negative role in the film. The film released on December 21 to much hype, however, it did not meet expectations, with several critics slamming it.
