Parodies from mappila songs to films, Anvar busy trying to strike chord with voters
Aluva (Ernakulam): Thayyikkattukara native Anvar is a close ally of all candidates who contest the local body polls. Anvar is more busy than the candidates during election season. He prepares parody version of many popular songs in Malayalam to woo votes for different candidates. He makes both old and new hit songs for creating parody.
Anvar said that Mappila songs and folk songs have more demand in Ernakulam district. The songs should be changed including the name, election symbol and ward of the candidates in a way that attracts the voters.
He started making parody songs during the election of 2010 local body polls. This is the third battle in the election parody. Anvar records the songs in his own studio 'Hitech Media' at Aluva bank junction.
Anvar has created songs for many candidates from Kasaragod to Thiruvananthapuram. Earlier, parody songs were played in announcement vehicles. Now he only needs to send the songs via WhatsApp. As candidates from outside the district also contact him for parody songs, Anvar's studio has become active again after the COVID crisis.
