In a treat for all Bahubali fans, Telugu pop singer Smita Vallurupalli has released a new song in Kiliki, a language invented by Madhan Karky, the popular lyricist, which is spoken by the Kalakeya tribes in the film.
The song was introduced by Tollywood director SS Rajamouli in Baahubali, and is Smita’s first new release in 15 years after her first album Hai Rabba.
According to a report in Deccan Chronicle, the song ‘Baha Kiliki’ is said to be a tribute to the entire cast and crew of the film, and features Smita along with ‘Kalakeya’ Prabhakar himself and rapper Noel Sean. The lyrics were written by Madhan Karky. The song has been composed by Achu while the video has been choreographed by Bollywood choreographer Bosco and conceptualized by Director Dev Katta.
Smita has sung in Bollywood, Tollywood and Kollywood, along with pop and devotional songs. She had also earlier released ‘Ishana,’ a collection of spiritual Sanskrit hymns.
She also received a Filmfare award in 2005 for best female playback singer.
