Q) This is your second film under Varahi banner, how was it working with Sai Korrapati?

Q) The music in this film is little different than your earlier films? Is there any particular reason behind this ?
There are no love songs in this film. All of them are only situational songs and to be frank, the story inspired me a lot in composing the music. My father has written lyrics in Rajanna and just as a sentiment, he continued it in this film as well.
Q) Why are you composing music for less films these days?
A) There is no particular reason behind it. I am doing limited movies as people are not approaching me.
