Oh, you really put me in an awkward position, Jampala gaaru! :-))

Probably I did hear CNR, the way I wrote in my first posting?! Yes, you
are correct that _manchi mitrulu_ came a year before _Ekaveera_. Since 
there is a big time gap, more than a year, between both the releasing dates
of these films, 'inkaa telavaaradEmi' seems to be indeed their first duet.

Though I read and heard that _Ekaveera_ film project was stretched over
a long time, I doubt if the song: 'prati raatri vasanta raatri` went
much ahead of 'inkaa telavaaradEmi` to recording studios.

Thanks and Regards,

P.S. So, I take back my "correction" (to my initial posting) :-).
     Bhaskar garu, those quiz masters at REC-W, are to be informed :-)).
