KADAPA: Film music director Nihal, his wife and son visited Ameen Peer Dargah, popularly known as Pedda Dargah, in Kadapa on Saturday night and offered prayers. Nihal visited the Dargah library and temples at Devunikadapa and Vontimitta. Nihal told newsmen that he was working on music direction for a feature film ‘Rainbow’. He also sang the titled song for tele-serial ‘Nidhi’ and worked as music director for many television serials. He was nominated for Filmfare award and won the Vamsi-Berkeley Best Singer Award in 2006-07.

Drawing inspiration from his mother, who was a singer, he said he did M. Phil. in music and worked in Mauritius for four years, before doing a fusion album along with noted music director R.P. Patnaik, which brought him fame. His playback song ‘Galagala paruthunna godarila’ in the film ‘Pokiri’ was a hit.
