"Saroja, Saamaan Nikaalo!" -- The opening line of a song in the latest hit film Chennai 600028 has a very odd source of inspiration.

According to SP Charan, this line is inspired from a piece of dialogue from Mudhalvan, when the one-day CM, Arjun, asks a Saettu (colloquial reference to a north Indian businessman) to vacate the flat which was originally allocated for a slum-dweller. The Seth tells his wife, "Sushma, saara saamaan nikaalo..."

P.S.:- I can't help but point out that the line reeks a bit of provincialism, but never mind. ;)
