Hailing from Mandamarri town in erstwhile Adilabad district, the real name of Jai Srinivas is Neredukomma Srinivas. He is born into a family of teachers who have sound knowledge of music. After stepping foot into the showbiz world, Srinivas roused to fame by crooning the patriotic number ‘Desam Manade Tejam Manade’ from the 2004 film ‘Jai’ directed by Teja. Since then, he sang several songs in films like Veedhi, Raja Rani, Ongole Gitta and Jenda Pai Kaipraju.
Besides devotional, patriotic and folk albums, Jai Srinivas crooned for several short films and web series. Earlier this month, when Srinivas was receiving treatment in the ICU, singers like Rahul Sipligunj, Geetha Madhuri, Ranjith and Mangli made an appeal on social media for monetary donations to the singer.
Rest In Peace, Sir!
