After the success of "Dhinka Chika" song for Salman Khan, starrer " Ready", South Indian composer Devi Sri Prasad, has been getting numerous offers in Bollywood. Devi Sri Prasad liked the evergreen film ‘ Sholay’ so much in his youth days, that he has seen the movie many times in his young days, and had then made his thoughts to make his journey to the film world.

He stated that music in’ Sholay’ could always be an inspiration for his generation. Thus, he always wanted to be part of Bollywood and entertain the music lovers throughout India. He has so much passion for music and the film industry that he does not miss any music show hosted for his fans in abroad. Though offers from Bollywood are in the pipeline, he wants to continue with Tamil and Telugu projects too.

Ready (Hindi film) was a remake of a Telugu film by the same name and “’Dhinka Chika’’ was part of his both Telugu and Hindi version too. Prasad is overwhelmed by the success of the song ‘Dhinka Chika’, which is in lips of everyone in Northern India, and even overseas audiences have appreciated his composition.

He is very happy that ‘’Ready ‘’ can now be the stepping stone for him into Bollywood. What makes his music so different in Bollywood is that he understands the situation first and then within a few minutes he can compose few lines. Once he gets inspired by the situation, it is only a matter of time before he emerges with a hit tune. He is one musician who belches out suitable tunes with ease.

Who can forget his copious number of hits from “ Arya 2” to the pulsating duets in “Ready” or even “ Aata”. Today, he is the most-sought after music directors in Tollywood. His songs from films like ' Mr Perfect' and '100% Love’ also were super-duper hits.

Although he got an offer from Bollywood even before Ready was made, he was waiting for a real big break. He feels music is more about emotions than language. So, in whichever language one might compose, the original raw expression of the song will always remain the same. In Telugu cinema, he has made some cameo appearance with Chiranjeevi (Shankar Dada MBBS and Shankar Dada Zindabad) and Pawan Kalyan starrer (Ninnu chudagane).

The music director is well known for his melodious numbers in Telugu films such as Jalsa", "Manmadhudu" and "100% Love”. In recent times, his composition in Tamil films such as " Singham" and " Sachin", have brought him more appreciation in Kollywood too. The music composer with good look can also be a promising actor in Bollywood and South Indian cinema. Hope he makes a swift journey to Bollywood and leaves a lasting impression for music lovers all over the world.
