    Music director Harris Jayaraj has become a big hit in Telugu. Though the films that he had composed music for have bombed at the box office, his tuned had become very popular.

    In all probabilities, he will also compose music for Chiranjeevi's son's debut film.

    A mild controversy is brewing in Tamil about the music director.

    It has almost become a habit for music directors in Tamil to base their tunes on devotional songs. Music composer Deva used to regularly make headlines because his songs were often lifted from popular devotional songs. In fact, some of his tunes were based on devotional songs addressed to Lord Subramania.

    Harris Jayaraj's compositions for Vettaiyadu Vilayaadu had become phenomenal hits in Tamil (suspense still prevails about the film's Telugu version). One of the songs, it seems, is a straight lift from a Christian devotional song.

    Though nobody has complained directly until now, there are many who are grumbling about corrupting a devotional song by using it for commercial films.
