Dhanush has been heavily rumoured to play Ilaiyaraaja in the latter’s biography for quite some time. Official confirmation that the news is accurate has now been provided. The biography will begin production in October 2024 and will be released in theatres in mid-2025.
It has also been confirmed that Connekkt Media and Mercuri Group would co-produce the highly anticipated movie that will bring to life the life of one of Indian cinema’s greatest icons.
Dhanush to Feature in Ilaiyaraaja’s Biopic:
It has been revealed that a biopic about the life of musical icon Ilaiyaraaja would be filmed, which is possibly the most thrilling news for movie and music fans in recent decades. For a long time, the composer has been nothing short of a legend, dominating South Indian cinema music. Back in the day, a picture was considered completed without an Ilaiyaraaja soundtrack; such was the composer’s potency.
The idea that a biography is being developed about a unique personality who has remained relevant after years in the music industry and continues to create excellent content, which is extremely remarkable. The casting of Dhanush in the part of Ilaiyaraaja is an extra bonus for the viewers. The presence of Dhanush in the biography ensures that the film version of Maestro’s life would be portrayed with the utmost sincerity onscreen.
