Bhaskarabhatla Remembers Friend Chakri On His Death Anniversary

Bhaskarabhatla remembers his good friend

Music director Chakri passed away on December 15, 2014, at the young age of 40, leaving his fans heartbroken. Born Gilla Chakradhar, Chakri composed music for more than 85 movies in Tollywood and also won the Nandi Award for Nandamuri Balakrishna-starrer Simha. Chakri’s last film was Vennello Hai Hai, which was released in 2016. 

Today, prominent Bollywood lyricist Bhaskarabhatla took to social media to pay tribute to Chakri on the latter’s eighth death anniversary. Bhaskarabhatla posted a picture of himself with Chakri on Twitter and tweeted the following lines: 

“నువ్వు లేవన్న వాస్తవాన్ని అంగీకరించడం కన్నా 

నువ్వు ఉన్నావన్న భ్రమ నాకు ఎప్పుడూ బాగుంటుంది చక్రీ !!

లవ్ యూ చక్రీ ❤(sic).”

Rather than accepting the reality that you are no longer with us

The illusion that you are among us is far better

Love you Chakri.

It was Chakri who encouraged Bhaskarabhatla to become a lyricist. They started their careers at the same time and Bhaskarabhatla got his break with the Chakri-composed Itlu Sravani Subramanyam in 2001. It was the beginning of a friendship that would last until Chakri‘s death with Bhaskarabhatla and Chakri collaborating on more than 65 films.
