Nannaina: I composed this tune for a director called
Vijay Nalla for a film titled 'Missamma' by PRC films banner
which was stalled. The lyric was 'Sivudo Sivudu', which
was penned by Sirivennela. Later on I used this tune to
a film titled Kishkinda Kanda directed by T Prabhakar. Lyric
of this song is 'Punjabi paradalo'.
Cheekulu Kavala: This tune was used for a flop film
titled 'Samarpana' starring Vinod Kumar in which Y Vijaya
acted as villain. Raja produced this film in the direction
of Lokchandar. Vennelakanti penned the lyrics and this song
was sung by Srinivasa Murthy who later turned into music
director with a film titled 'maa aavida meda ottu - mee
aavida chala manchidi' (EVV). We used the same tune for
this song in Simhadri.
I scored music for Usha Kiron Movies film 'Peoples Encounter'
in the direction of Mohan Gandhi. I gave a tune called 'Lal
Salaam' for the lyrics penned by Veturi. I used the same
tune for Singhamalai.
Whistle veste: I scored this tune for NTR's film in
VMC banner in the direction of Pawans Sreedhar. It was stalled.
Rajamouli came up with another story for the same combination.
This tune was completely ready before Rajamouli stepped
into the project. Rajamouli liked the tune and took it for
Simhadri as it is.
Cheema: I tuned a song called 'Chepa Chepa' for K Raghavendra
Rao's film Sahasa Veerudu Sagara Kanya. This song was unused.
This song was meant for chepa (fish) character in that film.
I would like to give the entire credit of this song to K
Raghavendra Rao. Rajamouli okayed this tune as well.
anaku: I lifted this song from an English song called
'Cotton Eye Joe'. After this tune, I decided not to lift
