Amit Trivedi has given the music for the period drama.
In the 47 seconds long motion teaser, we are introduced to Bachchan's new avatar in a big teeka on his forehead and a long grey beard. As the strong background music begins, you will not be able to take your eyes off the screen as senior Bachchan gives a mild smile on his wrinkle face. This is the first time that legend Amitabh Bachchan will greet his fans in such look.
The teaser ends with a cute birthday wish, saying, "Happy Birthday Amit Ji!" On megastar Chiranjeevi's birthday, the makers had released his character motion poster too with a birthday wish for him at the end.

“.. as may be noticed .. the beard and the hair and the head, all in unison to make my working life a running hell , is back .. despite the swear of ‘never wanting to work in a film which required me to be of beard and wig’ …the trials and tribulations of professional necessity .. .. though I must say .. this one gives promise of a permanent base in the Himalayas ..,” Amitabh Bachchan commented on his blog about his look in Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy. Earlier this year, senior Bachchan traveled to Hyderabad to shoot his portions of the movie.
