Music composer S Thaman is enjoying the fruits of his success as Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo tunes continue to be earworms. Best known for his drumming skills, the 38-year-old musician had made his industry debut at the age of 11, and his breakout film was Ravi Teja-starred Kick (2009). In the early days of his career as a music director, he delivered musical hits such as Mirapakay (2011), Dookudu (2011), Baadshah (2013) and Race Gurram (2014), etc. He holds a unique record of reaching the 50th and 100th movies mark in music in quite a short period. However, he also faced the charge of plagiarizing the tunes, which he has always denied.

In 2020, Thaman entered the golden phase of his career with the all-time chartbuster album Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo. It’s not an exaggeration to say that his music for the film had played a pivotal role in the film’s popularity. His album achieved a milestone of hitting more than one billion hits cumulatively on digital platforms.
