Unlike Chiru's song, RGV's Kanipinchani Purugu Corona talks about how powerful coronavirus is. This song, which is sung by Ram Gopal Varma, has got 463,853 views, 29,000 likes and 5,088 comments A fan named Fayaz Ahmed comment on it, "After listening to this song Coronavirus Committed suicide. The one and only man who can kill this virus with only a song is My hero RGV. Whatever you do I love you, sir."

Subscription is one reason for more views and like. RGV's YouTube channel has over 861,000 subscribers, whereas CCC's channel was created recently, has only one video and has just 1,130 subscribers. But Chiru's song was widely circulated by many celebs and the fans of the mega family. It was expected to get a huge number of views, but its numbers are terrifically low.
