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.

Superstar Rajnikanth launches the audio of "Bujjigadu-Made in Chennai" which has my first Telugu Film Song!

K.S Ramarao, Sandeep Chowta, Prabhas, Puri Jagannath and Rajnikanth

And finally it is out! Yes folks....My first Telugu film song is out in the market now. When Sandeep Chowta told me " will not get bigger than this" when I was recording the song, I did not even imagine that it would be so big!
Superstar Rajinikanth officially launched the first audio of the film 'Bujjigadu - Made In Chennai' at a function that was organized at the Andhra club in Chennai, yesterday evening at 6 p.m.
Speaking at the audio release function of the Telugu movie 'Bujjigadu – Made In Chennai', Rajnikanth, said, "Puri Jaganath" introduced Kannada matinee idol Rajukumar's son on to the silver screen. Chiranjeevi's son is shaping his career in filmdom under the able guidance of Puri Jaganath. Had I had a son, I would have ensured that he is introduced to cinema by Jaganath."
On taking part in the function, the superstar also commented, "normally I am choosy on attending public functions. However when I was approached for this event, I told to them to have a gala function at Andhra Club."
Directed by Puri Jagannadh and produced by K.S Rama Rao, 'Bujjigadu - Made In Chennai' features Prabhas and Trisha in lead roles. The lead pair was also present for the audio launch, among other film personalities. Priyamani and Sanjana too added gloss to the already glittering evening.
Rajinikanth also expressed his confidence that this movie starring Prabhas, Trisha and Mohan Babu would go on to become a big hit.
Sandeep Chowta has scored music for the movie and all the songs have reportedly come good. The music of this film is being released by Aditya Music Company.
The film would hit the big screen on 16th May. The audio CD is available at all music outlets across Andhra and leading Music outlets like Planet-M and Times Music outlets across the country.

"Sandeep Chowta" introduces me in Telugu Cinema with "Bujjigadu Made in Chennai" a "Prabhas-Trisha" starrer directed by "Puri Jagannath"

After a long time I make a comeback into the playback singing arena with a huge break, the greatest break I ever had in my singing career so far! "It cannot get bigger than this"... as in the words of "Sandeep Chowta", who finally made it possible for me! Sandeep also makes a big return to Telugu cinema. Sandeep is riding the waves of success after "Om Shanti Om" for which he did the background score and that's already created history in Bollywood!
The call came when I was in Dubai for a show and I flew to Mumbai directly for the recording at Sandeep's recording studio "Yatra".
The movie "Bujjigadu...Made in Chennai" is a big budget Telugu movie, starring super star "Prabhas" and heroine "Trisha" in the main leads! The film is directed by none other than one of the most talented and hottest commercial directors of Telugu Cinema, "Puri Jagannath"! What more could have I asked for! I have recorded a song that would be a real surprise for all my music lovers. This song would showcase me in a totally different mode. It has all the ingredients of a fast paced peppy Sandeep Chowta song! I really enjoyed singing this song and have vastly benifitted from the experience of singing it as it was totally a new one for me! Shooting of the song commences from today! The film is scheduled for a January release in 2008.
This song also has the extremely talented rustic voiced "Sonu Kakkar" singing with me. She is the one who electrified us all with another Sandeep Chowta number "Babuji Zara Dheere Chalo" some years back. The song also has some catchy fills of rap by the talented rapper "Earl".
