Ilayaraja and ‘Thaarai Thappattai’

Ilayaraja and Thaarai Thappattai Maestro Ilayaraja is almost done with his 1000th film ‘Thaarai Thappattai’, as far as the songs are concerned. “Only the background score is left,” sources say.

“There are nearly a dozen songs in the movie and all of them would be a treat to his fans and music lovers. The audio launch will happen soon,” sources say.

Directed by National Award winning Bala, the film has Sasikumar and Varalakshmi Sarathkumar in lead roles. It is about the lives of folk artistes.

“Both Sasikumar and Varalakshmi will be seen in totally different get-ups. Bala has done enormous homework and research about folk artistes,” sources add.
