Telugu singer Smita has released her first single, 'Baha Kilikki', as a tribute to the team of "Baahubali: The Beginning". The music video of this pop song has gone viral on YouTube.
"Baahubali: The Beginning" introduced a new language called Kilikki to the world. This language is spoken by the people of Kalakeya tribe. Madhan Karky wrote the lyrics. On SS Rajamouli's request, he created a proper document for the language, which has 750 words and 40 grammar rules. Kilikki went on to create history.
Madhan Karky is now back with his magic and he has penned lyrics for Smita's pop song 'Baha Kilikki', which has been conceptualised by director Deva Katta. Achu Rajamani has composed music for the track, which has Bosco's choreography, Sameer Reddy's cinematography, Murali's art direction and Adele Periera's editing. This peppy number has come out really well.
The music video of 'Baha Kilikki' features singer Smita sizzling with Kalakeya Prabhakar and rapper Noel Sean. Parts of the song lyrics is below:
pipi filifi jivlaa groakki
unoa dunoa muvoa chavo
dambadamba bugoa kilikki!
