Saranga Daryia song from the upcoming film Love Story starring Naga Chaitanya and Sai Pallavi has been a huge hit after the release. The stellar dance moves by Sai Pallavi to this beautifully penned folk song crooned by Mangli made it an instant hit. However, it is charged with copy allegations.
A folk singer from Warangal named Komali alleged that this folk song from rural Telangana was crooned by her in a TV reality show. She also added that Sekhar Kammula promised to give her a chance to sing the song, but as her voice coarsened at that time, she asked him for 10 days to fix her voice. However, the director who was in a rush made another singer croon it but promised Komali to give her due credits and assured her that he will give her a chance at the audio release event. She went on to allege that she did not hear from the team at all. "It is unfortunate that the rural folk artists are going through such discrimination in Tollywood. The handwork shouldn’t be miscredited,” she quoted.
While the film unit is yet to respond to these allegations, lyricist Suddala Ashok Teja has a different version on this row. He stated that the folk song is in existence for a long time and Komali claiming it to be hers is wrong. We need to see how this row will turn up in the coming days.
