Music arises according to the taste of the listener. There are movies that deserve the audience. It is not the people who embrace the Mayabazaru or Patalabhairavil. That is why we cannot find Mahadevan and Ilayaraj now. At least they have good music, like Shekhar Chandra.

There are many musical hits like ‘Nuvvila’, ‘Karthikeya’, ‘Potawav Cherivada’ and ‘118’.

What’s your memorable moment so far?
The biggest movie I ever made was ‘118’. There is only one song. Needless to say, it was a big challenge. Guhan Garu Director .. Kalyan Ram Garu Hero.

That’s my memorable moment.

Do you think that big heroes are not making films?
There will definitely be that feeling. However what I do is short films .. new concept oriented films. So .. I can give you fresh music. Good applause comes. No need for a big movie to make a name for it ..!

Mostly thriller movies .. Love story is being made. Which ones are most likely to be a plus?

Love Stories are good melodies … and thrillers can give you a good background score.

Why do platforms like social media stay away?

Why not think about it .. Rahul Sipliganj also said that open Insta account. I think about them from now on.

Like ‘Nee Kannus’ ‘Undipova’ in ‘Savari’ Movie, ‘Chandamame’ in ‘118’ Movie, ‘In the Ever Wonder Woman’ in ‘Karthikeya’, ‘Maipayam Vasantham’ Movie in ‘Saripoke’ .. I like these songs.

Do films in other languages ​​too?
There is much to be accomplished in Telugu at the moment. Will we ever see it again (laughs)

Your father is a cinematographer .. When you say you will be the music director .. How did he react?
Cinematography is not a bad idea, but as a music director, it is very risky. But after making some films, he got Confidence after seeing the response.
