Devi Sri Prasad was to score the music for Balakrishna starrer Gautamiputra Satakarni. But things have changed now. DSP has too many big projects in his kitty and it is doubtful if he can finish his work in time for this film which is planning to release during Sankranthi 2017. The latest update is that Krish has brought in music director Chirantan Bhatt to score the music for this film.
Chirantan has worked for films like Ram Charan's 'Thoofan' and Krish's 'Kanche'. Krish who is very comfortable with Chirantan has given this prestigious chance to this music director. Krish was planing to approach music maestro Ilayaraja or M M Keeravani, but finally he zeroed in Chirantan Bhatt.
Gautamiputra Satakarni is Nandamuri Balakrishna’s 100th film. He has been paired with Shriya Saran in this film. Hema Malini plays an important role.
