Mumbai: Living legend Ilaiyaraaja will be celebrating 1000 films today in Mumbai. Many top actors including Rajinikanth, Kamal Haasan and Amitabh Bachchan will be present as part of the commemoration.
An insider source revealed that Shruti Haasan will also be present at the event alongside her father, to cheer on Raaja sir, who she made her debut with as a singer at the age of 6 in her father’s Tamil film ‘The car Magan’ – the original version of ‘Virasat’. She has subsequently done tonnes of songs with Raja sir.
The occasion also marks the music launch of ‘Shamitabh’ for which Shruti has sung a very catchy track called ‘Sanatta’ – the soft launch of which has not only become the album’s biggest hit but also a chart topper for 2015 so far.
‘Sannata’ as a vibe is very different from the song she sang earlier this year ‘Joganiyan’ for Tevar which also was a runaway success as a romantic yet a rock love ballad. ‘Sanatta’ is very young, contemporary, edgy and quirky – very much like the musical vibe of Shruti. It has names of various contemporary singers, lyricists, actors and musicians as part of it’s lyrics along with elements of beatboxing as part of the background music making it very cool and interesting. The makers are hence hoping to use the success of ‘Joganiyan’ and the edginess of this track showcasing yet another aspect of Shruti and therefore their own repertoire
Shruti will be seen gracing the occasion in solidarity for Raaja sir and her sister Akshara who makes her debut with Shamitabh alongside her father Kamal Haasan.
