Chiranjeevi appreciated Devi Sri Prasad for Gabbar Singh music

Despite all the skepticism over making a Telugu version of Bollywood chartbuster Munni Badnam Hui, composer Devi Sri Prasad has produced a foot-tapping number with a very catchy name — Kevv Keka — for Gabbar Singh. The number is already on top of the charts.

I liked the number Munni Badam Hui and was aware of its huge popularity. But I was confident of coming up with a better catchline as well as a rocking tune,” said Devi Sri Prasad. “I just focused for a few weeks to belt out a rocking number and fans have lapped it up. Even Chiranjeevi garu said that I have done a good job.” The song, which features Malaika Arora Khan, Abhimanyu Singh and Pawan Kalyan, has alone cost producer Ganesh Rs 2 crore.

With his score for Gabbar Singh, the composer has regained his prominence in the industry after scoring few duds in recent past.

I am passionate about music and like to do good work. This number game is quite dicey. Leading film-makers always had confidence in me, so I never felt insecure even for a minute,” he said.
Devi Sri Prasad put to rest rumours about him working with Akon. “There’s nothing on the cards for now, but I would like to work with international pop icons Shakira or Nicole of Pussycat Dolls,” he said.
