Telugu folk singer Mangli to amplify hype around ‘Pushpa: The Rise’


The makers of ‘Pushpa: The Rise’ are planning to get Telugu folk singer Mangli on board, to sing a peppy number for the movie.

With Allu Arjun and Rashmika Mandanna in the lead roles, the movie has already got the best of the worlds, in terms of cast and crew. Now the famous folk singer is also set to join hands with the team of ‘Pushpa’.

‘Pushpa’s music director, Devi Sri Prasad, has reportedly roped in Mangli to sing a folk song, which would represent the folks of the Rayalaseema region of Chittoor district in Andhra Pradesh.

As Allu Arjun’s story revolves around the rural remote areas of Chittoor district, the makers wanted a representative song, dedicated to serving the purpose. So, they apparently roped in Mangli, as she is popular for her folk singing.

It is to be noted that Satyavathi Rathod, popularly known as Mangli in the Telugu states, has crooned some chartbuster songs in Telugu.

Famous for her traditional Banjara attire, Mangli’s Telangana folk songs grabbed her fame as a singer and television presenter.

Her recent sensational song was ‘Saaranga Dariya’ from Naga Chaitanya and Sai Pallavi starrer ‘Love Story’.

This is the third single from the crime thriller movie ‘Pushpa: The Rise’ will see its launch.

The songs ‘Dakko Dakko Meka’ and ‘Sri Valli’ from Pushpa became instant hits, crossing several million viewership numbers on YouTube.

This Sukumar directorial will be released in two parts- The first part, ‘Pushpa: The Rise’ is slated to hit screens on December 17 worldwide.

The Malayalam film industry’s most hyped actor Fahadh Fassil is to appear as the villain in the film.

Ninda Stuti: Police complaint on singer Mangli


Singer Mangli landed into another controversy, after Sarangadhari song controversy. BJP leaders filed police complaint on her for insulting Hindu gods and offending the sentiments of devotees. However, she tried to reduce the tensions. Details as follows.

What is the controversy:

Recent singer Mangli released a song on Bonalu, a traditional festival of Telangana. The lyricist attempted the song in “Ninda stuti “ lyrical style. It is a specific literary style in which devotee looks like blaming his idol but actually he is praising and that can be understood only after careful observation of his words. This is one of the complex literary style because even a small mistake can actually lead to wrong interpretation and one may feel that lyricist is actually blaming his God. In fact, the same thing happened with this lyric of Bonalu song and some Hindu devotees vehemently criticised singer Mangli for insulting Hindu goddess through this song. Of course fans of Mangli argued that, it is the mistake of the lyricist Rama Swamy but not her. However others pointed that the song was released on Mangli’s channel and it is her responsibility to ensure devotees are not offended. BJP leaders went one step ahead and filed police complaint in Rachakonda police station in Hyderabad . They also demanded that the original song be deleted from all the channels of social media.

Mangli’s quick response:

However singer Mangli quickly reacted to this. Instead of arguing or defending herself, she released a new song with modified lyrics. Modified lyrics are aimed at appeasing the devotees as all the negative words are completely removed from the song. It seems this modification of lyrics earned her respect from devotees and her fans.

What is “Ninda Stuti “ literary style:

The literary style like Ninda Stuti can be handled only by those poets who have lot of maturity as well as sensitivity to understand the emotions of devotees. Poets like Kasula Purushottama Kavi and Dr. C Narayana Reddy showed their mettle in handling this feature. Especially Kasula Purushottama’s Sreekakulandhra Shatakam is the most popular work in Telugu literature in this style.

Upcoming lyricist Ramaswamy, who wrote this Bonalu song, could not succeed in writing a “Ninda Stuti “ song without offending devotees. As Ninda (blame) dominated Stuti (praise) in this song, it disrupted the delicate balance that is needed in the ‘Ninda Stuti’ style of poems and songs. Probably it is better for upcoming lyricist and poets not to take up this literary style until they are matured enough to handle the same.
