During the audio launch of Pawan Kalyan‘s Attarintiki Daredi, Brahmanandam hinted that there would be a surprise and true to his words couple of days back filmmakers released a song ‘Katama Rayuda’ tuned by Devi Sri Prasad. The song was an intstant hit.
When filmmakers were basking under success glory, enthusiasts found out that it is a copy to earlier song from Sumangali sung by AS.Rao and Malathi. Chitturu Nayya composed it and Samudrala penned lyrics.
Many blasted filmmakers for making Pawan sing copy tune and some even expressed their anger for changing the beat. Devi later was forced to agree that the song was indeed from Sumangali and when Trivikram Srinivas planned to keep a hilarious scene, they used the song.
He even conceded that the credit belongs to them only. But many wondered why Devi kept silent till people found out the background of the song. Had he gave credit earlier itself before the song released everyone would have appreciated him.
