Since its release, “Manike Mage Hithe” has caught the fancy of Bollywood stars. Everyone from Amitabh Bachchan to Parineeti Chopra have expressed their admiration for the peppy romantic number. It has spawned impressive remakes in Bhojpuri, English, Hindi, Tamil, Bengali, among other languages.
Yohani Diloka de Silva recently commented on the song’s popularity in an interview with indianexpress.com. She said, “A lot of our music is inspired by Bollywood, probably because we are neighbours. The influence is really strong. But I’m seeing a renewed interest in Sri Lankan music and most importantly in our language… For me, this kind of love is also representative of a bond between India and Sri Lanka.”
