It is pretty interesting to note that even young current singers still 
sing hits by Ghantasala.  I think that shows how remarkable of popularity 
Ghantasala's songs had.  One more fine example of this is the TANA tour 
of Ramakrishna, Susheela, Jikki, etc last summer.  I think it was 
interesting to note that Ramakrishna, even though he was a fairly popular 
singer in his own right, performed only songs sung by Ghantasala.  All of 
the duets that Ramakrishna and Susheela sang together were also strictly 
Ghantasala/Susheela duets.  Maybe we have seen a peak in telugu music 
with Ghantasala.  Interesting how almost all telugu people, can off the 
top of their heads name ten Ghantasala/Susheela hits, but have trouble 
naming ten hits of other telugu singers.
