Mahesh Babu has chosen SS Thaman to compose the music for his next movie, which is directed by Vamshi Paidipally. Since the 'Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo' musician is delivering superb songs one after one, they have gone in for him.
The choice is surprising because Mahesh recently indicated that he can't think of any other music director but Devi Sri Prasad. And, on Sunday, Thaman created a controversy by saying that the box-office collections of 'Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo' have been claimed with honesty.
It's learned that Vamshi insisted on Thaman. 'Maharshi' saw DSP as the music director. This time, the director wanted to try someone new.
The film will go on the floors in April.
