Veteran music director MM Keeravani composed the heart wrenching song Raalipoye Puvva Neeku Raagalenduke for the film Mathrudevobhava. The song literally made every film lover cry and it was also given the national award for best lyrics. In a recent TV interview, Keeravani was asked to sing the song and the music composer refused to sing.
Explaining the reason behind his refusal, Keeravani said that Young Tiger NTR once told him that the song was his favorite and that he sings it to himself whenever he is alone. In turn, Keeravani surprised NTR by recording the song in his voice once again and dedicated it to him. Not stopping here, Keeravani even promised NTR that he owns the song from them and that he will never sing the song without his presence or permission. Apparently, Keeravani even refused to sing the song in several musical shows. Keeravani gave several hit numbers to NTR in films like Student No.1, Simhadri and Yamadonga.
