Fans react

Fans of the song were also thrilled to see it featured on the Olympics’ official page. One fan wrote, “We got olympics using a telugu song before GTA 6.” Another commented, “Olympics using geeta govindam song ? Wah!!” Because the song was composed by Gopi Sundar, one fan wrote, “Before malyalis come claim this song I would like to tell them this is a telugu mashup song.” One wrote, “Haha olympics targeting the biggest audience in the world.”

Vijay and Rashmika celebrate milestones

Geetha Govindam is a 2018 film directed by Parasuram Petla. It stars Vijay and Rashmika Mandanna in the lead roles. The film and its songs were a massive success. Vijay teamed up with Parasuram again for The Family Star but the film failed to make a mark and repeat the success of Geetha Govindam.

Vijay and Rashmika recently also celebrated their 2019 film Dear Comrade, which raked in 400 million views on YouTube. Vijay will soon be seen in a film directed by Gowtam Tinnanuri, while Rashmika will star in Pushpa 2, Sikandar, Kubera, Rainbow, The Girlfriend and Chhava.
