Anirudh’s music has been topping the charts since Jersey which was the biggest hit for Nani in the last few years. So, he made sure that Anirudh also composes the music for Gang Leader.
But that is not enough, the inclusion of Anirudh cost the makers a bomb and increased the budget a lot. The industry grapevine is that Anirudh was paid a whopping 3 crores for the film.
So, this made the budget go up Not many were happy with Airudh but Nani wanted him at any cost and so he was hired. His music is getting a good appreciation especially his BGM.
