Sitaara was the debut movie of Bhanupriya and it was based on the novel by Vamsy – Mahal Lo Kokila. It’s an interesting story of how Bhanupriya was roped in as the lead. Vamsy wanted to rope in Radha for the lead role but he couldn’t due to budget restrictions. He introduced Bhanupriya and as they say, the rest is history. The film received 3 national awards – Best movie in Telugu, Best Editing and Best Female Playback Singer for S Janaki.
I am not featuring the song that Janaki rendered because it is the same tune as “Dhoorathil Naan Kanda” from Nizhalgal. Ku Ku Kokila Raave is the best one of the movie according to me. You will know the reason when you listen to it.
