Tollywood sound designer P Madhusudhan Reddy died of heart attack on Monday, 20 April. He is survived by wife Sashi, children Saidutta and Drudanjaneya.
Reddy started his career as re-recording assistant for "Govindha Govindha" in 1993. Later, he made his debut as a sound designer for films like "Gulabi" and "Sisindri" in 1995. He gained recognition for his work in these movies, which flooded him with several new offers. Within no time he proved himself to be a master technician in the Telugu film industry.
He served as a DTS mixing engineer, sound recordist and sound designer in over 125 Telugu films in his two-decade career. "Oka Laila Kosam" (sound designer), "Manam" (audiography), "Arundhati" (sound designer), "Bhai" (sound designer), "Mirchi" (DTS mixing) and "Okkadu" (sound mixer) are some of his recent notable works.
Better known as DTS Madhu, Madhusudhan was a perfectionist and introduced several innovative technologies to Tollywood music. Impressed with his skills, popular music composer Devi Sri Prasad worked with him for all his projects and never worked with anyone else.
The news about Madhusudhan Reddy's death has come as a shock to the Telugu film industry, which is still struggling to recover from the loss of musician Sri. Some celebrities such as Rana Daggubati, Lakshmi Manchu, Vennela Kishore and Ramana Gogula took to their Twitter handle to condole his death.
