Ever since the makers of Rebel Star Prabhas' new film 'Saaho' revealed a fresh poster with the release date, the fans are desperately waiting to catch the film in cinemas. But, they were shocked with the news that musical trio Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy have exited the film as audio composers.

Even, their names did not appear in the fresh poster. As the filming part of the film is in its last leg, the sudden news has left fans unhappy. Prabhas fans and netizens were waiting to know why they had quit the project midway. So, Shankar Mahadevan has offered a reason for them to opt out of Saaho. Shankar said: ' As the producers were planning to recruit another composer to compose a few songs in the audio album, we're uncomfortable with it. So, we conveyed the same to them and made an exit. We also mentioned it to the makers and for any musician to earn a reputation, he has to be the only composer of that project.

Also, we planned to handle the background music for the film, but they (producers) had someone else to do that job. Considering other music developer coming onboard, they should have allowed us to score the complete album, but we were not okay to that idea."

The renowned singer also said that they (the trio) always work as a team and never wanted to be identified as multiple musicians.
