There are many composers from the Isaignani ilayaraja's family entering Kollywood. At present, there are nearly five musicians from the family working in the field and Yuvan Shankar Raja is the most popular amongst them. Now there is one more young talent coming from this musical family. But he is entering films as an actor and not as a musician. Yes, ilayaraja's nephew is making debut as a hero.
He is Hari Baskar, younger son of R.D. Baskar (ilayaraja's elder Brother). He is the first actor emerging from this family of music. The film is titled Aayiram Nilave Vaa, which is the first line of a famous song from late Legend MGR's film. Hari Baskar's brother Parthy Baskar, who directed hit film Pambarakannale with Srikanth and Namitha in the lead, will direct this film.
Amritha, a new comer from Kerala will play heroine in the film and veteran artiste Radha Ravi will plays a cameo role. However, other artistes are yet to be finalized. Chandramukhi fame Shekar V Joseph will handle the camera and Srikanth Deva (Parthy Baskar's Brother-in-law) will score the music. The film is expected to be launched by the first week of June. V.Varadharajulu is planning to produce it in a grand manner under his banner Sri Cine Makers.
