Once and for all, Komali met Shekhar Kammula through her ‘Rela Re’ director Suresh who made her meet the director and resolve the issue. Issuing a video statement along with Kammula, Komali said, “I expressed by angst through various media channels that I must be the singer of the song because I was the one who brought our the song.”
” Now that Shekhar Kammula gave me assurance that he is going to give me chance in one of his next films whenever there is a chance for a folk song, besides making me sing the song at the pre-release event of ‘Love Story’. I’m happy to end the controversy once and for all.”
