Early in the morning on 4th November, he called me through the phone and said he conceived the Pallavi of the song and asked me to pen down the lyrics as narrated them on the phone. There is a reference to ‘Sirivennela’ in this song. When I asked him why, Sastry garu said ‘This might be my last ever song’,” Rahul said.
