The superhit audio album and then a riveting background score composed by Devi Sri Prasad for Rangasthalam is undoubtedly one of the main reasons behind the film’s blockbuster success. DSP has been getting a huge appreciation for his work for Rangasthalam.
But instead of applauding DSP for giving a hit album, Mega fans are firing on him. And the reason is the superhit ‘Aa Gattununtava’ song, originally sung by popular folk singer Sivanagulu. While Sivanagulu’s version was released with the audio album, his song was replaced by DSP’s monotonous voice in the movie that released on Friday.
During Rangasthalam’s pre-release event in Vizag, DSP invited Sivanagulu on the dais and showered him with praises. Now, fans can’t fathom DSP’s sudden injustice to a folk artiste and they are openly rebuking the star composer on social media.
Meanwhile, Sukumar came to DSP’s rescue. In a success meet yesterday, Sukumar said that Sivanagulu is a highly talented artiste. The director went on to clarify that while Sivanagulu’s track sounded perfect while listening, the team felt that his voice was not suiting Charan on the big screen and that’s why they had to replace it with DSP’s track in the last minute. Well, this should put an end to the controversy.
