His first song was given to him by composer Mahesh for the Tamil film Nammavar starring Kamal Haasan. Luckily for him, the song Sorkkam enbadhu namakku was a hit, and Srinivas career took off. To date, Srinivas has sung for all the leading composers of the South, including Illayaraja and Deva to name a few. His recent hits were from the film Tajmahal and Mudalvan. Right from the start, Srinivas says he was keen to sing for Rahman, after he heard his haunting score in Roja. And his aim was fulfilled soon. "I went and met Rahman, and expressed my strong desire to sing for him. Rahman was very encouraging, and tried me out. He must have liked my singing, because he has asked me to sing for him regularly. And some of my careers best numbers have been for Rahman," says Srinivas. The singer is impressed with Rahmans dedication to music. "Hes totally absorbed in his music, and theres nothing else that affects him," says Srinivas in praise of the maverick composer, "For him music is God. And he gets the best out of a singer." A die-hard fan of ghazal maestro Mehdi Hassan, and also addicted to R.D. Burman-Kishore Kumar hits, Srinivas has earlier sung for a couple of Hindi albums like Pagalpan and Ahsaas.
