Devi Sri Prasad a.k.a DSP was roped in compose music for both Gautamiputra Satakarni and Chiru 150. Both films are targeting Sankranthi 2017. Director Krish is said to have asked DSP to wrap up the music for the film soon. DSP who is at home composing tunes for commercial entertainers needed more time to compose music for the historical drama. Working with a strict and fast paced schedule proved difficult for DSP’s leisurely pace of working. Also DSP has multiple projects in various stages. So the duo have parted amicably and hope to work on another project soon

Ilayaraja or M M Keeravani will step in to compose the music. Gautamiputra Satakarni is the story of the 2nd century King Gautamiputra Satakarni . The film stars Balakrishna, Shriya Saran and Hema Malini in the lead roles.
