Once upon a time, there used to be a period where Bollywood composers loved to work on Telugu films. The likes of Bappi Lahiri, Sandeep Chowta, RD Burman and Laxmikant Pyarelal have composed some hit numbers for Telugu star heroes. But now, one wonders why many Bollywood composers are getting hurt with Telugu movies.
If we dig a bit into the past, talented composers Vishal-Sekhar have composed earlier for Chintakayala Ravi and later they are not approached by any. And recently they have composed songs for Allu Arjun's 'Na Peru Surya. But after giving music and making two songs in that album a super hit, they didn't speak about the film anywhere owing to the creative differences.
Same is the case with music composer Chirantan Bhatt who has scored for films like Kanche and Gautamiputra Satakarani. Though he is approached by a few movie makers, we hear that somehow he got hurt with Telugu makers. And now, Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy opted out of Saaho movie, owing to creative differences, adding one more to the list of Bollywood composers who got hurt in Telugu industry.
Currently, the big Bollywood composer Tollywood is looking forward to is none other than Amit Trivedi of Queen fame, who is now scoring for Megastar Chiru's Sye Raa and Nani's V. Hope all goes well.
