A report on an leisure portal stating that the prolific Tamil-Telugu-Hindi music composer M M Keeravani is planning to retire has precipitated misery amongst a few of his followers who consider the written phrase. However once I requested Keeravani, a pricey good friend for a few years with whom I alternate songs on whatsapp, concerning the report he was shocked.
“I’m retiring, Sir? That’s information to me!” he stated with out an iota of irony. Then after a thought he added, “I’m in a farmhouse proper now far faraway from all of the information and rumour that floats round within the metropolis. Manner again in 2014 I did take into account retirement. Not anymore. It’s been 5 years since I gave up the thought of retirement. However the hypothesis continues,” sighs the soft-spoken Keeravani whose all-time favorite composer is Sachin Dev Burman.
Why did he ponder retirement 5 years in the past? “I believed I had labored sufficient and it was time to make approach for different youthful composers. I’ve been composing since 1990. And I did take into account hanging up my boots…fairly, beats. However my daughter and spouse didn’t enable me to. So right here I’m six years later, nonetheless on the scene however not within the race for certain.”
After Baahubali, Keeravani’s rating for Rajamouli’s RRR is eagerly awaited. What sort of music can we anticipate? “Nicely, it’s a interval drama, set in 1922. The sound of my music is partly Baahubali-ish and partly military-based. One factor I can assure you. It’s a sound by no means heard earlier than,” guarantees the ever-innovative and unfailingly melodious Keeravani.
