In a recent media interaction, music composer Yuvan Shankar Raja revealed that he has plans to make a biopic of his dad and veteran composer Ilaiyaraaja. Yuvan added that if the biopic materializes, he would be directing the film and the chosen title is 'Raja-The Journey'.
Yuvan also said that Dhanush is his choice to play the lead role in the biopic of Ilaiyaraaja. Yuvan Shankar Raja and Dhanush are good friends that together they have delivered many chartbuster albums in the past including Thulluvatho Illamai, Kadhal Kondein, Pudhupettai, Yaradi Nee Mohini, and the recent Rowdy Baby from Maari 2.
Ilaiyaraaja has also recently sung the 'Maari Andhadhi' written by Dhanush and composed by Yuvan Shankar Raja in 'Maari 2'.
