It is difficult to find anyone in his senses who has listened to Illayaraja's music but has not become his fan. This is true of the laymen and pundits alike. Lyricist Chandrabose more often than not lost himself listening to the Maestro's soulful music. And if it came with the lyrical dose of the brilliant Veturi, Chandrabose would savour it even more.
He has been here for 15 years but the in-fashion lyricist did not have the opportunity to writer for an Illayaraja song. Gundello Godari fulfilled his dream of writing a song for which the legendary musician himself set the tune! "It has been my dream to work with Illayaraja for long. When I met him, my affection for him showed itself in my eyes," he says.
After writing for Dammu, Chandrabose is all set to woo us with lyrics imbued in spiritual ink in Nagarjuna's Shirdi Sai. Besides, he is writing for Damarukam, Venky's Shadow, YVS's Rey and Balayya's Srimannarayana.
