Many people who might have followed music shows on various Telugu TV Channels might be aware of Folk Singer Siva Nagulu. The folk singer is quite a famous for his unique voice and his dialect. Many believe that he breathes life into his songs. Only very few people know that Siva Nagulu sang the song ‘Gattununtava’ from Rangasthalam movie.
But the theatrical version has Devi Sri Prasad’s vocals for the song. Upon the movie’s release, Siva Nagulu expressed dissatisfaction and felt bad for the whole episode. He publicly stated that Rangasthalam team should have informed him before replacing his vocals.
Rangasthalam director Sukumar responded to these comments. Sukumar said, ‘at the time of posturizing this song, Siva Nagulu has not recorded the song. We used DSPs vocals while posturizing it. After the song has been shot, and Siva Nagulu recorded the song, there was no lip synchronization.
That is the reason we had to use Devi Sri Prasad’s vocals. Apart from it, there is nothing else. This is because of technical reasons than anything else. Even now, it is Siva Nagulu’s voice that is featuring on Rangasthalam album’. It is nice to Sukumar coming forward and explaining the whole thing.
