	One hears many apocryphal stories like this about well known 
personalities. Some of these do not pan out to be true when closely 
examined or checked.

	For the above story to be true, it would have needed not only G's 
doDDa hRUdayam, but also an understanding director as well and a 
neutral lyric that did not make a difference which character on screen 
sang what part of it. Secondly, in those days, songs were sung several 
times in rehearsal before the actual recording and several 'takes' would 
be expected for each song. So, the mistake should have happened at the 
first or second rehearsal and then it should have been allowed to continue 
till the end.
