During his last days, the late music director Chakri was reportedly under depression as he hardly have big offers in his hand. One of the successful composers in Telugu, who scored music for over 85 films, lately Chakri had very few films and his last film was Dasari's Erra Bus.
With top directors in Telugu opting for music directors based out of Chennai and even roping in few Tamil music directors for Telugu films, top musicians like Chakri were sidelined although not deliberately. Apparently, Chakri was under 'depression' and this was also expressed by singer Kousalya when she saw him at Memu Saitham.
In fact, Chakri's last words with his office boy where he expressed his wish to meet 'Jagan Anna' (director-producer Puri Jagannadh) too indicate that the late talented music director was eyeing for big-budget films. Although several directors and actors claimed at his funeral that they had always wanted to work with Chakri, nothing was concrete or nothing was in paper.
Unfortunately Chakri is not the only one who is ignored. Even top music director like MM Keeravani had publicly admitted that he too was not getting good offers like before. Whatever, Chakri had died at very small age and in trouble period. This definitely don't go well with his fans and admirers.
