I am sorry, but thought that I clarified it yesterday. I don't remember ever
saying about G Vijaya Kumar's voice matching while singing high notes. Its
not from me.

Thanks Prasad! But, let me clarify that this anecdote is the most often
mentioned one, in every article on rElangi. Its also mentioned in the
book _baapoo ramaNeeyam_.

Myself and Srikanth have been discussing on this since long. Technically its
play-back and Srikanth included her name in many of her post '1950 films. I
say that since the common conception is that "bhanumati never needed a
play-back SINGER", leave her name.

Did n't she dominate in all her films :-)? vipranarayana is correct!
You can count all her (bharaNi) films.
