Baahubali- The Conclusion (Bahubali 2) music director MM Keeravani has now said that he will not retire. The veteran composer had earlier hinted that he would announce retirement, and the reason he cited was "brainless directors" in Tollywood.
The renowned composer had put out a series of tweets, talking about his retirement plan, and it seemed like his work on the film music front will end with Bahubali 2 songs. However, he now tweeted that he will continue working in the industry but on his own terms.
"And my journey continues. On my own terms. Good news to whoever wished for it and my heart felt gratitude for their love and support," he tweeted.

Keeravani had earlier taken to Twitter to express his displeasure in working with some of the directors in Tollywood industry over the years. The 55-year-old music director, without taking names, had lashed out at directors for ignoring his advices.
While he praised Bahubali 2 director SS Rajamouli for his craft, Keeravani had criticised others, who according to him never took his advice seriously. He even had said there are less chances of him continuing in music industry as he is unhappy with the way his directors have been treating him.
"I worked mostly with brainless directors. They won't listen to my words," he tweeted. "The reason for my best music for SSR. He listens".

He had further tweeted:
"Directors think that I am just a musician. They won't pay attention for good advice". "I predicted many flops of mine while story narration itself. But the directors are deaf". "If at all I continue working as per my well wishers wish, I don't want to work with deaf and dumb directors". "Because I was never proud of myself as a musician. I am proud of the writer in me".
And my journey continues. On my own terms. Good news to who ever wished for it and my heart felt gratitude for their love and support ??❤️— mmkeeravaani (@mmkeeravaani) 26 March 2017
In his concluding tweet on his retirement plans, Keeravani had said, "The chances of me continuing are less and less as there are more and more brainless directories in Tollywood". Although Keeravani is more than satisfied composing the music of the Bahubali series, it is evident that the music director is miffed with many directors he had worked with earlier.
