Devi Sri Prasad has walked out of 'Gauthami Putra Satakarni' as he wouldn't be able to meet the deadline set by Krish. Now the makers are said to have found a replacement in Ilayaraja.
Reports suggest that the 'Maestro' has been approached by Krish and the veteran gave his nod, liking the subject. An official announcement about the replacement is expected soon. Ilayaraja earlier worked for Balakrishna's 'Aditya 369', 'Srirama Rajyam' etc.
There were reports that Bollywood music composer, Chirantan Bhatt, of 'Kanche fame, was considered as the replacement. But Balayya wants Ilayaraja considering the scale of the project.
Krish, who got married recently, will resume the shooting of the film soon. The film will be released as Sankranthi gift in 2017.
