Looks like Smitha Vallurupalli has blown to smithereens many a record. The Telugu pop singer is ecstatic that her recently released tribute song ‘Baha Kilikki’ (with the theme of ‘Baahubali’'s Kilkili language) has attracted a milestone of one million hits (cumulative) on YouTube.
“I’m thrilled with the response I’ve been getting for the song on the social media and want to thank everyone for their appreciation and love. I also want to particularly thank the crew, director Deva Katta and cinematographer Sameer. This high is inspiring me to come up with more light-hearted based numbers,” Smitha gushes.
The singer-turned-actress recently has come up with a devotional album ‘Nirvana Shatkam’; dedicating it to her guru Sadhguru who she cogitates has triggered her on a spiritual journey. “This is my second album in devotional genre (after ‘Ishana’). I released ‘Nirvana Shatkam’ for the recent ‘Maha Shivaratri’.
It’s a composition of six slokas penned by Jagadguru Adi Shankaracharya. It summarises the basic teachings of Advaita Vedanta and emphasises that the verses enable for treading on the path of actualisation. I have been getting phenomenal response and I want to take up such albums often. People from abroad are calling me and showing keenness towards learning slokas and that’s summons up the whole story I guess,” she exults, signing off.
