Yuvan to turn filmmaker soon

Music composer and younger son of Ilaiyaraaja, Yuvan Shankar Raja organised a meet in Chennai to celebrate his 25 yeats in Tamil cinema.

Speaking to media persons on the occasion, he said that he will be directing a film soon. He said, ‘The script for my film is ready. I will be directing it either this year or next year.’

When asked to name a hero who he thought would be ideal to play the protagonist in his film, the music director said, ‘Actually, my film will be a female-oriented film.’

‘I desperately wanted to work with Lata Mangeshkar madam, but I am sad that it didn’t happen. I spend more time listening to my father’s compositions.’

‘Jagadish, who is with Vijay sir had sent me a picture of Vijay’s son wearing the T-shirt labeled Yuvanism. Later, when I met Vijay sir, he revealed that his son is his great fan. I was really happy to hear about it. The T-shirt that I wore with the slogan regarding the Hindi language was absolutely true. It’s a fact that I don’t know Hindi. I am not such an active person in cyberspace, and it’s my wife, who always brings the appreciation from fans and others to my notice.’

He said, ’25 years have passed like a small fraction, and I know that there’s a long journey ahead to travel.’
