Yuvanshankar Raja turns filmmaker
The man who enthralled everyone with his musical talent has a story to say. And here he comes with his story. Yuvanshankar Raja, the eminent music composer, will turn into a producer soon while attempting to picturise a beautiful story that he has written. He has started his own production house – Pearl Stone Entertainment Pvt Ltd.
Yuvanshankar Raja said that he has always had this desire to see his creativity take the form of cinema. He also added that cinema is a powerful medium through which various ideas can be conveyed effectively and he would like to paint the silver screen with his ideas. “As a musician, I have so many things left to be said, which I shall tell you in my films”, says the expert musician.
This yet-to-be-titled film will be directed by S.P. Sabha and will have his friend Mirchi Shiva (of Chennai 600028 and Saroja fame) in the lead. It is to be noted that S.P. Sabha is already directing Shiva in 16.
Also, this talented music director will work on a music album for Sony, which will release in March or April 2009. The theme of this album would be love. With the way the album is coming up, he is absolutely confident that it will strike a chord in the audience just like A.R.Rahman’s music albums did. But Yuvan has no idea of making an appearance in his music album.
Well, this is a great Deepavali for Yuvanshankar Raja – Aegan’s songs (composed by him) have become hugely popular and now this decision of filmmaking! It is a double Deepavali bonanza for Yuvanshankar Raja.
