Among the latest to get onto the loop of creating its own version of this viral Sinhala song, is none other than internet’s favourite singing sister duo, Antara and Ankita Nandy, who recently shared an Acapella version of the song while strumming with their usual ukuleles.

It may be noted here that Dheekshitha Venkadeshan, whose stage name is Dhee, is also a Sri Lankan singer.
