Legendary musician Ilayaraja has composed the music of his 1000th film, which happens to be R. Balki’s upcoming release ‘Shamitabh’.
To celebrate the legend’s incredible feat, Balki has organised a special event in the presence of superstars like Amitabh Bachchan, Rajnikanth, Kamal Haasan and several other living legends in the industry.
While Bachchan and Dhanush are expected to perform at the event, there are reports that other actors too will felicitate the 71-year-old veteran composer.
Ilaiyaraaja is also an instrumentalist, conductor, singer and a songwriter. He has composed more than 5000 songs and is the only composer in the history of cinema to compose the music of 1000 films.
The event is scheduled to take place later today.
