“See, late or early, the global recognition has come to a song which is not my best. That much I can say. But, when the recognition has to come, it will come somehow, from any corner. But late? Sometimes you feel it’s late because your lifespan is fixated, that’s how it is termed as late or early, when your life span is not fixated, it comes when it has to come,” he told Indian Express.

MM Keeravaani has been an integral part of the film industry since the 90s. Some of his most notable films include ‘Criminal’, ‘Zakhm’, ‘Baahubali’, ‘Eega’, and ‘Magadheera’.
