Devi Sri Prasad has become a regular music director for Mahesh Babu who has been repeating the singer cum music director, recently. We have been observing this bonhomie between them for five years.
Why did their collaboration take so long and only started five years ago when both of them have been in the industry for 20 years? Devi Sri Prasad revealed that he rejected Mahesh Babu’s ‘Athadu’ as the makers began the movie with another music director. So, he felt it ethically wrong to replace another music director.
However, we know that Mani Sharma delivered excellent songs and background score for ‘Athadu’ and that music played a key role in making the Trivikram directorial one of the most-watched films on the small screen, television.
More than the theatrical run. ‘Athadu’ is more famous for TV channels repeatedly playing the movie and the high TRP ratings when it was for the first time and also several other times it was telecast on the small screen.
