Murali shot to fame with the all time hit song 'Aaduvari Matalaku Ardhale Verule' from Power Star Pawan Kalyan's Blockbuster movie Khushi. Hence, he became popular as Khushi Murali. He had lent his voice for several chartbuster songs and was considered as one among the top Telugu singers in recent times.
'Kevvu Keka' (Gabbar Singh), 'Oo Andi Pilla' (Gokulam lo Seeta), 'BSE' (Master), 'Jingilaalo Yem Gingiraalo' (Vinodham), 'Prema Johaar...Hitler Down Down' (Hitler), 'Bunny Bunny' (Bunny), 'Marumalle Jabilli' (Lakshmi Narasimha), 'Ippati Kinka' (Pokiri), 'Laloo Darwaja' (Bommarillu), 'Chandamama Nuvve Nuvve' (Arundathi), 'Padara Padara' (Baanam) are some of the popular songs sung by Murali.
However, Murali would have contributed many more hit songs to Telugu film industry, but his fate, which seems to have different plans for him, has cut shot his musical journey in the form of heart attack. His untimely death has shocked many superstars, actresses and filmmakers in Tollywood.
