Thaman is going to score a Qawwali song for Siddharth’s forthcoming untitled movie directed by Nandini Reddy. He has composed the song recently and the lyrics were given by Ramjogayya Sastry. Qawwali falls under Sufi music, which was made popular by legendary singer like Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan. Though this form of music is very popular in Hyderabad, it has appeared rarely in Telugu movies.
It is very good to know that a contemporary director like SS Thaman is composing a Qawwali number. Samantha is playing opposite Siddharth in the film. The unit is going to fly to Dubai in the 4th week of September to shoot a song along with some scenes. The film is being produced by Bellamkonda Suresh and it is likely to release during the end of this year.
