When Boyapati Seenu said at 'Legend' success meet that he made Devi Sri Prasad work hard for the film, DSP was disappointed and expressed his frustration.
Many felt that Boyapati shouldn’t have said such words. However, the fact is, most of the top directors are not willing to work with Devi Sri Prasad.
NTR wanted Devi for ‘Temper’ but Puri knew the problems with him and suggested other composers to Tarak. However, NTR was stubborn to sign DSP and he did. But this ‘Rakhi’ music director made ‘Temper' team to wait for more than 2 months for the tunes. Irked with DSP's behaviour, ‘Temper’ team went ahead with Anup Rubens.
Same is the case with Vinayak too. This ‘Nayak’ director is one of the most friendly persons in Tollywood. But DSP has successfully irritated Vinayak as well by delaying 'Background Music' for Alludu Seenu.
Vinayak was very disappointed with Devi’s behaviour and that is the reason why he took SS Thaman for Akhil Akkineni’s debut movie.
Agreed that Devi Sri Prasad is the top music director in Tollywood at the moment. But, when the producers are paying him more than 1.75 cr as remuneration, it’s his responsibility to deliver the music on time.
