Is it old-timer Mani Sharma for Chiru?

Is it old-timer Mani Sharma for Chiru?
If some media reports are to be believed, Mani Sharma has been roped in to compose the music for the Chiranjeevi-Koratala Siva movie.  The Bollywood duo Atul-Ajay seems to have been given a miss.
 
The 'Melody Brahma' is definitely enjoying the fruits of the success of Puri Jagannadh's 'iSmart Shankar'.  He is currently doing Ram Pothineni's 'RED'.  If he has indeed bagged the Chiru movie, he can't ask for more.  This is going to be his first collaboration with the Megastar many years after giving the best tunes for 'Indra' and 'Tagore'.
 
Director Koratala Siva is yet to make the names of the heroines of the movie official.  Trisha Krishnan may have been roped in, if unofficial media reports are anything to go by.
