Cochin, Sep.9 (NR): Veteran playback singer P Jayachandran is quite unhappy with the way in which singers are treated by the film industry these days. He was speaking at the audio release function of the film 'My Boss' when he made the revelation.
Jayachandran remembered that he had taken quite a lot of effort to sing the 'Paattil Ee Paattil...' song in 'Pranayam'. The singer said that he was quite disappointed when he came to realise that the makers had decided to retain Shreya Ghoshal's version in the film.
Jayachandran requested film makers not to mete out such an unfair deal, especially to budding singers. The veteran singer, who is fondly called 'Bhavagayakan' by music lovers in the state, has been an active presence in playback singing ever since 1965.
