Earlier, a Bollywood filmmaker expressed his dream of making a biopic on the legendary music composer with actor Dhanush
In August, during a film promotional interview, Bollywood filmmaker R Balki expressed his wish to make a biopic on the Music Maestro, Ilaiyaraaja, and he desired to cast actor Dhanush, with whom he worked on ‘Shamitabh’, as the lead. Now, reports are rife that Dhanush is going to star in the legendary composer's biopic and the film is expected to go on floors next year.
According to reports, Ilaiyaraaja's biopic starring Dhanush will commence its shoot in October 2024 and that the film is expected to hit the big screens in the middle of the year 2025. However, details of the film's director, other cast and crew are not clear yet.
It is said that the most-anticipated film is going to be the first venture of Connekt Media and Mercuri Group, who have reportedly entered into a partnership to make big-budget films in the South with an investment of around Rs 925 Crore. Their collaboration is expected to churn massive films with superstars over the span of next three years.
However, an official confirmation and announcement on the above is awaited.
On the work front, Dhanush is currently working on Arun Matheswaran's Captain Miller and Sekhar Kammula's tentatively titled film #D51. He also has his own directorial #D50 and Anand L Rai's ‘Tere Ishk Mein’ in the pipeline.
