Ilayaraja tunes for Gautham Menon's film
The fact that the Isaignani Ilaiyaraaja captures listeners with his evergreen music even today makes every filmmaker want to work with him. And, the latest to team up with Isaignani is Gautham Menon.

Confirming this news Ilaiyaraaja says, "I have two films that I will commence work on shortly. One will be for Gautam Menon and the other for Suresh Menon. The discussions are in process and will get working soon."

This will be the first time that Gautham will be working with the legendary composer, for he has only used the tunes of Harris Jayaraj and A. R. Rahman thus far.

Ilaiyaraaja also reveals another interesting piece of news. While he has composed music for Telugu, Malayalam, Kannada and even Marathi films so far, he will soon commence work on a career first. "I will be scoring music for the first time for a Punjabi film. This is the remake of the classic Tamil film Mouna Ragam," he shares.

When we quiz him on whether he would use the timeless tunes of the Tamil original, which were also composed by him, he smiles and says, "That we would have to wait and watch. At a time when the music industry is seeing so many developments technologically in terms of music, with different kinds of music coming together, I have stuck to my guns and it has worked for me thus far." ie.
