It is known news that SS Rajamouli‘ directorial venture Baahubali introduced Kilikki, a language developed for one of the tribes in the film. After the release of Baahubali, the pop singer, Smita, who’s a distant relative of the director, has revived the lingo in her music video, Baha Kilikki, which featured her and Prabhakar, the actor who essayed the Kalakeya king.
Earlier during an interview, Smita had said, “When SS Rajamouli’ magnum opus Baahubali released, I was so fascinated by the Kilikki language that I had to make a song with it. I contacted Madhan Karky, who had created the language. Madhan translated the film’s Telugu dialogues into Tamil and agreed to write the lyrics for my song, “Baha Kilikki, Raha Kilikki” which translates as “Speak Kilikki, Sing Kilikki”.” Now according to the latest update, Baha Kilikki music video, which Smita released as a tribute to Baahubali team, has now received 100 Million views.
Singer Smita herself confirmed the same by sharing a post on Twitter, “At a 100 million and counting. We are celebrating Bahakillikki as we reach a 100 million on my YouTube.”
Baha Kilikki features Smita along with Kalakeya Prabhakar and rapper Noel Sean. The song is composed by Achu, and choreographed by ace choreographer Bosco.
