Question 3

Hint: From a Hindi movie, which was a remake of a Tamil blockbuster movie. AR Rahman pretty much used all the tunes of his Tamil hits for the corresponding Hindi versions. The Hindi movie didn’t do well. And this was the only song, I believe that was not in the original Tamil version and was made exclusively for the Hindi version.
