And I sing another Telugu song tuned by Sandeep Chowta in "Saleem" for Dr. Mohanbabu....

Illeana & Vishnu Vardhan Babu

It's been a month where different things have happened. I had an operation on my right ankle to remove the steel implants placed around an year and a half back, to repair the Trimalleolar ankle fracture. I was laid up in bed again and had a pleasant surprise when "Sandeep Chowta" called me to sing another Telugu film song! Again this is a very big occassion after "Bujjigadu" in 2008. I flew to Mumbai and we recorded the song in "Yatra" his studio at Andheri. This time it's for "Dr. Mohan Babu" the Telugu Super Star, who also is the producer of the film.The film has been named "Saleem" and stars his son "Vishu Vardhan" and "Illeana" in the lead roles."YVS Chaudhury" directs the movie. The song is a solo one and a "breathless" kind of number. "Chandrabose" is the lyricist. Do wait for the Album which would be out the next month. It has 5 other peppy numbers.

Mejo Joseph

"Notebook" is a beautiful film which was directed by "Roshan Andrews" and has melodious songs tuned by the young and immensely talented "Mejo Joseph" who also happens to be my friend. We together had judged the last preliminary round of "Amrita T.V Superstar Junior 2". I got the minus tracks of the movie from him directly when he came to our College to inaugurate the arts festival. "Notebook" is his debut film.

"Iniyum" is a song that flows like a ghazal and has rich tones of acoustic instruments which makes hearing it a wonderful experience. The song has been sung both by "K.J Yesudas" and "Sudeep Kumar" as a duet with "Manjari" as the female voice.

Congratulations, Pradip! So proud of you.
I went through all the frames (photos) on the "Saleem" link but did not see what I was looking friend, Mr. Somasundaran..did I miss it?
How is your ankle?

Nice song from "Notebook". Some more background information about the lyrics would always help us (not familiar with the language) a bit. Unusual music. Your voice is clean and "in control" once more.

Pradip, I am happy and thrilled with this news. :)

I googled on SALEEM. I am eagerly waiting for the release of your album.
It would be wonderful and exciting to know when you get more chances to perform in telugu films.
