The Internet is the place where people can gain popularity in no time. Remember Sanjeev Shrivastav aka the “dancing uncle” who rose to fame over a dance video? His dance video went viral on social media. He got fame overnight and also got an opportunity to meet dancing king Govinda. In fact, many Bollywood stars met the dancing video star. Well, here comes another such case of a Kerala man. A singing video of Kerala man has gone viral on social media and he receives the biggest surprise of life after Shankar Mahadevan expresses his wish to collaborate with the man.
In the video, a man Rakesh Unni, identified as a daily wager, is seen singing Tamil hit “Unnai Kaanadhu Naan” song from Kamal Haasan’s movie Vishwaroopam. The video has gone viral and eventually, reached Shankar Mahadevan, who has lent voice for the song.
Shankar Mahadevan took to twitter and asked people to help him trace the man as he is willing to collaborate with him. He wrote, “This is called fruit of labour! When we hear this, it just makes me feel so so proud of our country that produces so much talent and is so rich in culture. Who is this guy??? How can I trace him? Need help & would like to work with him.”
