Vinay Shanmukh reason behind Independent Music Videos:
Vinay Shanmukh had a bad experience from one of his music videos. He actually worked hard for Rowdy Baby song for over a month. But YouTube has completely deleted the video due to copyright Infringement. This gave Vinay a new idea of composing his own independent music videos. He paired up with Vijai Bulganin and created their first ever music single Chusthu Chusthune Rojulu Gadichaye which really did good for their start and since then they were continuously working on bringing on new singles every now and then.
The music videos Thatukolede ( Vittu Pogathe in Tamil) and Chustu chustune (Parakkireney in Tamil), which Vijai Bulganin did in collaboration with actor-influencer Deepthi Sunaina and filmmaker Vinay Shanmukh caught the attention of Nani’s sister Deepthi Ganta and wife Anjana Yelavarthy, and paved the way for him to be a part of Meet Cute.
