‘Pushpa: The Rise’: Devi Sri Prasad opens up on Allu-Samantha’s ‘Oo Antava’ controversy

New Delhi: Allu Arjun and Rashmika Mandanna starrer ‘Pushpa: The Rise’ directed by Sukumar has been thundering at the box office.

The film recently released on OTT in South and Hindi languages, too and took over the platform. Not just the movie, also the songs are creating a buzz on the internet. Talking to a leading website, the music director of ‘Pushpa’, Devi Sri Prasad, who gave the audience amazing songs like ‘Oo Antava’, ‘Srivalli’ talked about the controversy surrounding the ‘Oo Antava’ song.

A political party member had raised an objection with regards to ‘Oo Antava’ song claiming that a devotional song has been converted into an item number. Devi Sri Prasad on it, said, “It was not that. Generally, they were talking about item songs in a press meet, when someone asked me why are you working on the item song to which I responded for you it is an item song, for me it is just a song. From the composition side of a musician, we have to cater to what the director wants, what the subject demands. If it is a love song, it’ll be a love song, if it is an item song, it’ll be an item song. For me, it is a song, I have to do best possible for that. For me, be it a devotional, love, or item song, the composing process remains the same. However, it was taken in a different context by these (political) guys which was unnecessary.”

‘Pushpa: The Rise – Part 1’ traces the fight of good against evil in a fast-paced, gripping story where the police crackdown on the red sandalwood smuggling empire that pervades these parts. The fast-paced, powerful and thought-provoking narrative drags the audience into a vortex where there is no right or wrong and there is no bad guy but the hero in different shades.
