Do you think this has paved way for Indo Sri Lanka musical collapse?

Well, I am not familiar with both languages. Because my mother’s tongue is Sinhalese. but a lot of the friends who are Tamil, they help me.
And she from Malayali Kerala, as thought me how to sing that part in Malyali.so that was really cool. I really love the process. It was nice learning a new language as well.

As I heard one Tamil version and one Hindi version. That’s two Hindi version is really I like. And as well Bengali version, that’s really amazing.
