was the first of the Telugu music directors to come.
During a time when Tamil music directors threatened
to boycott Telugu films, Krishna Vamsi brought in
Shashipreetam to do the music of Gulabi and he did
a tremendous job. Not I am sure he is going to prove
himself as a capable director also with this film."

how small films get a boost because of such corporate
sponsorships. This should be encouraged in the film
industry as small films need to be encouraged."

sung a similar melody for this film and I wish that
this film is a success."
