It is no sin in saying that we, the Telugu audience and music lovers have some other language films and songs as our favourites. Cashing in on such favouritism and their popularity, film and music directors, every now and then, try to rope in singers from North. And we like too. Because sometimes the songs rendered by a fresh voice especially by an established B-Town singer could make it a treat to our ears.
However, it is certain that we do have a huge lot of regional singers here down in the south. But the point here is to give the song a suave touch and make it more pleasant and unique to listen to. And that is why our musicians zero in on some famous singers who can give their best to the Tollywood tracks.
The phenomenon is nothing new here as for decades now, singers have been exchanged between different languages across the country citing their amazing voices.
So today, we would like to bring to you a short curated list of B-Town singers who have gotten some amazing talent which made them show their mettle in Tollywood as well. Have a quick look and find your favourites.
