Sagar Mahati, son of popular
, says he has a long way to go before he can even think of matching his father's work. But he doesn't deny the fact that his father has had a big influence on him.

Sagar is making his musical debut with forthcoming Telugu film "Jadoogadu".

"There's no doubt that my father has influenced me to follow in his footsteps. But it's going to be a long journey before I can even think of matching his work. It'll be an achievement if I can even come near to his work," Sagar told IANS.

"I've been accompanying dad to his music studio from a very young age. There was never any pressure to become a composer, but having spent most of time watching him compose music, I was automatically attracted to it," he said.

Sagar was never confident of turning composer.

"What really convinced me was that Yogesh, director of 'Jadoogadu', had immense faith in me. His trust gave me lot of confidence and in a way it motivated me to take up this opportunity," he said.
