On the occasion of Sarileru’s release, we caught up with DSP for a brief interview. Here is the transcript?
Your bond with Mahesh Babu?
Mahesh is one star who has shown immense support towards me through my thick and thin. The moment he believes in you, he stands without no matter what and the same happened with this film too. The outcome of Sarileru is partly because of the confidence that Mahesh has shown towards me.
What happened to your films as a hero?
As I became very busy with my films, my debut vehicle could not take off and this is the main reason I want to concentrate on the music of my films. I am getting a lot of offers from Tamil and Telugu but as of now, I am busy doing my music which is keeping me busy.
How do you start composing for every film of yours?
Every film has a different story and depending on it, I make music. For me, the situation and theme of the film are very important and that is how I go about doing my songs. For the first time, I got a commercial subject for Mahesh which gave me scope to go all out and make all kinds of songs.
You have been in the game for a long time. Do you ever feel bored and repetitive?
There are times when you become slow in life. But I take each project as my first film and treat it with utmost sincerity. That is the reason my music is long-standing for many years. I keep inventing myself time and again and see what is going on in the country in a greater way and get inspired by my music.
What do you like apart from music?
I love photography a lot and take a lot of pictures when I travel abroad. Actually, my dad loved photography and came to the industry to become a cameraman but became a writer.
Your future projects?
I have Allu Arjun’s next film with Sukumar and am also doing Keerthy Suresh film along with Rang De and Uppena. All these films will come out this year.
