Panchadhara Bomma from ‘Magadheera' made you famous as a playback singer overnight, how long do you think you can ride on that popularity?
I can say Panchadhara has become synonymous with my name. Besides making me a playback singer overnight it has to some extent also dominated the other sides of my profession. It is not that I haven't recorded any song post Panchadhara…my hip- hop number in Arya 2 was a hit.
What I have recorded post Magadheera have all been well appreciated. I think the other songs will take their own time to gain recognition. I am more bothered about the action; consequence is not in our hands. To me, my satisfaction ends with me recording the song. If later my name is not in the album cover I don't let the fact disturb me.
Are you happy being an actor, an emcee, an RJ or a playback singer?
I like to call myself as ‘all in one.' If I choose one, it will be like choosing one finger from your hand. Playback singing completed my image as an entertainer.
Have you recorded anything recently or signed any movies?
A couple of good movies are slated to happen and I am talking to a couple for producers for the same, hopefully I should be lucky. A few more songs are coming up in 2011.
