AR Rahman at Ram Gopal Varma’s receiving end
Maverick film maker Ram Gopal Varma takes on music directors this time. The director said that AR Rahman, MM Keeravani, Mani Sharma and Devi Sri Prasad had together killed music in films.
Varma once said that there are only two musical hits in his films; they are Kshana Kshanam and Rangeela. MM Keeravani and Rahman worked for those movies.
Varma introduced Rahman to Bollywood with his musical hit Rangeela. Keeravani worked for his second film.
He introduced Mani Sharma to Telugu film industry with Chiranjeevi movie that did not see the light of the day. Based on that film’s music Chiranjeevi took him for his home production Bavagaru Bagunnara.
