Megastar Chiranjeevi’s ambitious period drama SyeRaa Narasimha Reddy suffered two set backs in the form of sudden walkouts from DOP Ravi Varman and composer AR Rahman. However, this didn’t impact the start plans as the film kicked off in style on Dec 6th with Ratnavelu coming on board to can shots. But, the worrying factor is that the makers are yet to finalize the music composer for this prestigious project.
After AR Rahman’s exit, it has been widely speculated that Thaman is most likely to be named as replacement as he gave a thumping background score for the film’s motion poster. Denying the reports, Thaman clarified that he hasn’t been yet approached by the makers.
In the meantime, reports emerging that seasoned composer MM Keeravani is also in consideration for this big budget entertainer. Sources say Surender Reddy and producer Ram Charan are in a dilemma to decide who would be render full justice to SyeRaa, a period drama which chronicles the life history of Uyyalawada Narasimha Reddy.
SS Thaman, who is one of the most sought after composers in Tollywood at present, though, not worked for period and historical films proved his mettle with a pulsating score for the motion poster and turned the attention of everyone.
On the other side, MM Keeravani’s has a handy experience as he worked for big budget and period films in Tollywood like Baahubali and Magadheera. So, he would be an ideal choice to work for SyeRaa.
As of now, both these composers are in contention to join the star studded SyeRaa. We have to wait and see who among these two will bag the golden opportunity.
