Can Surender Reddy find a replacement for AR Rahman ?


It is a little disconcerting for Surender Reddy and his team after AR Rahman officially announced that he is unavailable for Megastar Chiranjeevi’s SyeRaa Narasimha Reddy. The Oscar winning composer’s exit is a double whammy for team SyeRaa as they already suffered a setback after popular cinematographer Ravi Varman walked out of the project due to delay in the start. However, they brought Ratnavelu on board as replacement.

As the film is made as a multilingual project with a grand canvas involving an ensemble cast and a whopping budget, renowned technicians like AR Rahman and Ravi Varman would easily give SyeRaa a nationwide attention. But their sudden exit has left Surender Reddy in a spot of bother.

Now, the question is whether team SyeRaa can find a suitable replacement for AR Rahman who could do justice to this magnum opus.

Though SS Thaman’s name is widely speculated as replacement for AR Rahman, it is yet to be known whether Surender Reddy has locked him or is he looking for other alternatives.
