Ilayaraja turns producer

‘Music’ and ‘Ilayaraja’ have been synonymous to each other for more than 900 movies in all major Indian languages. Well now things are going to take a different turn as the composer will turn producer for the flick ‘Sengatthu Boomiyilae’. (We wonder why the idea came so late for the composer who has an illustrious career spanning more than three-and-a-half decades as of now.)

Well the prolific composer has his own reasons for arriving at this decision.

We heard that he was really taken aback when director Ratnakumar (the man who gave successful scripts for Bharathiraaja’s films ‘Kizhakku Seemiyilae’, ‘Karuthamma’ and ‘Kadal Pookkal’) narrated the script of his upcoming flick ‘Sengattu… to the to-be producer.

In fact the musical wizard was so impressed that he decided to take up production duties in his own hands. Ratnakumar’s final version moved Ilayaraja so much that he said he’d put in everything to make  the “already well made movie” a big success.

The music director who has given us immortal classics, is well acquainted aware of the hurdles a producer faces in making a Kollywood flick  but his firm belief that a ‘good’ film doesn’t necessarily run on just the big stars tag makes him take a confident step ahead towards his goal.

Swami Cine Arts will produce and release the film which features Pavan, Senthil, Sonulakshmi, Priyanka and a good number of debutants in small but significant roles.The movie is awaited by next month-end.

Let’s wish ‘Isaignani’ all the success he deserves in his production endeavours!
