Superstar Rajinikanth, Kamal Haasan, Amitabh Bachchan, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Shruti Haasan, Dhanush, Shreya Ghoshal and Sridevi came together on Tuesday night to celebrate the 1,000th film of music composer Ilaiyaraaja.

At the music launch of Shamitabh, the music maestro was felicitated in the presence of the entire star cast of the film and all the big dignitaries of the film industry from the likes of Gulzar to Jaya Bachchan.

Amitabh Bachchan, Kamal Haasan, Sridevi and Rajinikanth felicitated Ilaiyaraaja while Gulzar and Jaya Bachchan unveiled the music of filmmaker R Balki's much awaited film Shamitabh.

Amitabh described Ilaiyaraaja as "a genius". He said, "I have never dared to sing in front of him because I found it very embarrassing. Every time I used to sit in a studio separately to record... I remember one occasion while doing 'Paa', where I had to sing a song with Raja saab in front of me. I can't say how frightening it was."

Kamal Haasan said, "Raja has become a part of my life. Today I got the opportunity of hugging him. He is a bit shy. I knew that he would do his 1000th film and I am glad that his 786th film was with me."

Abhishek Bachchan said, "It's an honour to be present here with the wonderful talent around us. Thank you for giving us this opportunity Raja sir."

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan said, "Thank you very much. It's an absolute honor to be present here. We have enjoyed your music. Thanks to the team of Shamitabh. Thank you all the legendary icons. I have the pleasure of calling one of them Paa."

The music launch even also witnessed a live performance by Amitabh Bachchan and Dhanush, apart from other singers like Shreya Ghoshal and music composers like Bappi Lahiri.
