Hi Anoop..Pleasure to meet you..
Hi..Thank you..

How is your career shaping up as a music director?
I am having a great phase of life now. My last seven films were hits. Adda, Poola Rangadu, Ishq, Gunde Jaari Gallanthayyinde, Lovely, Prema Kavali, Heart Attack were a series of hits for me.  I feel absolutely fantastic about my journey as a composer.

Tell us about your upcoming projects?
Manam, Auto Nagar Surya and Bheemavaram Bullodu are three films belonging to different genre. It is a rare opportunity to work on such films. Auto Nagar Surya and Bheemavaram Bullodu are already out and garnering good responses.

How the association with Puri Jagannath did begin for you?
 Puri sir actually gave me chance to work ten years back itself but I couldn’t work with him then. I was approached to work with Nenu Naa Rakshasi and I couldn’t say no. My association with Puri sir began since then.

Your working experience with Puri Jagannadh?
It is a delight to work with him. I happened to go outdoors for the first time while working for Heart Attack.  I share a great comfort zone with him and learnt a lot while working. We composed few songs in Bangkok- I could give five songs for five days. But I took time for composing Tu Hi Rey- which became a hit.

Tell us about the association with hero Nithin...
I know Nithin since his Jayam days.  I share a good rapport with him right from then and I get a sibling feeling with his presence. I work very comfortably with him. There were good hit albums in our combination.  I wouldn’t mind doing any number of films with him.

The title song for every album of yours is good. What is the effort you put in for it?
I work equally hard for every song but I take special care for title song because it has more reach. So far I’ve been successful with it.

Your romantic melodies are quite famous. What is the special gift you are going to give your fans for this Valentine’s Day?
Our Heart Attack film is celebrating its platinum disc function on the eve of Valentine’s Day. That is the gift for me and my fans alike.

Upcoming Projects?
Manam, Autonagar Surya and Bheemavaram Bullodu are due for release. I remixed the hit ‘Oka Laila Kosam’ for Manam and it came out very well.

Do you aspire to work with any particular director?
Nothing of that sort. I wouldn’t mind to work with any director. I’ve been a lead guitarist for almost all composers in Telugu since ten years and that is why I have good relations with all prominent directors. At the same time I want to work with newcomers as well.

Okay..Wishing the best for your future endeavors!
Thank you...
