Dhanush dines with Indian, Japanese PM


By Hindustan Times

Thanks to Kolaveri Di, southern star Dhanush is making waves everywhere. Recently, he was invited by a dinner hosted by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh for Japanese PM Yoshihiko Noda.

"It's a great honour dining with the Prime Minister of India and Japan. It's you guys who made it possible. I'm glad god gave me an opportunity to make my parents feel proud of me. God bless," he tweeted.

Prime Minister of Japan, Yoshihiko Noda and first lady Hitomi Noda arrived in Delhi on Tuesday for a short visit to India. Dishes like idli and paranthas was part of the menu.

The song that has made India sway to its tunes, is making splash in Pakistan as well where a TV channel has come out with its own adaptation - a political satire. 'Where is democracy, democracy, democracy ji' is how the 'slap song' begins. The lyrics, like the original, are hilarious and take pot-shots at the government and the security establishment.

The Pakistani version that was uploaded on the Youtube on December 17 comes at a time when talks of confrontation between the government and the powerful security establishment are at a high. The video features five middle-aged men who seem disgruntled with the system in Pakistan. It points fingers at corruption and political system.
