No, Rajasekhar, It is "mantri chEyi ...", not manchi ....

Both the versions I have were sung by someone else (JV Raghavulu ?), but
not Ghantasala. To my* knowledge G sang only for the role "kRshNa". Infact
the film producer Pundarikakshayya in a radio programme (emotionally)
narrates at length how G recorded those verses, only for the role of kRshNa.
G was in "very" poor health those days and was on hospital bed.
Pundarikakshayya, a very good friedn of G, told him that they can change the
voice track later and there isn't nothing to worry about. But G insisted that
they make a direct track saying: "kaadu baaboo! avi pauraaNika padyaalu.
vaaTini paaDE teeru vEru. alaa pratyaksha sangeetamtO paaDaali. okavELa
naakEmainaa jarigitE kRshNUDi padyaalu paaDutoo pOyaaDu anna tRpti ", and
came to rec. studio.
