It's been four months since the makers of the Malayalam movie Velipadinte Pusthakam released the song Jimikki Kammal from the Mohanlal-starrer, but the Jimikki fever doesn't look like stalling anytime soon.
After it became the favourite of millions, now Bollywood actor Abhishek Bachchan has admitted that he is obsessed with Shaan Rahman's music, and added that he cannot stop listening to it.
"Current obsession: Jimikki kammal. Can't stop listening to it!!! Awesomeness. #jimikki #newfav #gottagetupandance [sic]," Abhishek tweeted on Friday, December 1.
Elated by the reaction of Bachchan Jr, music composer Shaan took to Facebook to express his happiness. "Lost for words ❤❤ Junior Bachan tweeted about Jimikki !! [sic]," Shaan posted.
Will we see Aaradhya Bachchan dancing to the popular song soon, following in the footsteps of Indian cricketer MS Dhoni's daughter Ziva, who won the hearts of Keralites with her Ambalapuzhai Unni Kannanod song? Only time will tell. But yes, we are waiting for that!
