owe an apology to Smita - Nagarjuna

taking Smita because he felt that she was pushed in
to the crew through the relatives of filmmakers. Later

has no jealousy - MM Keeravani

is smile (Chirunavvu). He said that it's natural for
any music director or singer to have pang of jealousy
on others. But Smita is an exception. A pop singer
should shed all the inhibition. Singing on the stage
while performing is a whole new art all together and
it is very difficult compared to playback singing
where singers are confined to the scenes behind. Keeravani

her all the success she truly deserves.

by the parents.

it was Rajamouli and Chandu (Chandra Sekhar Eleti
- Aithe director) who fought with each other about
who would drop Smita back at her place. Rajamouli
noticed the popularity of Smita when everybody was
asking Smita to sing 'Masaka masaka' song even in
the TV program that is meant to promote Sye film,
in which Smita sung a couple of songs.
the function a visibly elated Smita thanked each and
every celebrity who graced this occasion and opined
