Keeravani whose song Naatu Naatu is a global phenomenon, has been heard sporadically in Bollywood over the years. Now he is back to score for Neeraj Pandey’s next film Auron Mein Kahan Dum Tha starring Ajay Devgn and Tabu.
Keeravani says he has no reservations about music in Bollywood cinema. “I was very active in Hindi cinema in 2000-2002. The Bhatts, Mahesh and Mukesh invited me to play many scores. I enjoyed doing music in their films. Some of their songs like Jadoo Hai Nasha Hai and Banjara became popular. After that I was very involved in Telugu cinema. I couldn’t focus on Bollywood. The offers were also not exciting.”
Now, Keeravani says he is open to good offers from any part of India. “And why only India? Anywhere in the world is equally comfortable for me. In Hindi cinema, I have a comfortable working relationship with Neeraj Pandey. I did music in Neeraj’s Special 26 and Baby. When he offered me Ajay Devgn’s film, I accepted without hesitation.”
