Ilayaraja’s son set for Bollywood innings

Mumbai, July 1 (IANS) Acclaimed composer Ilayaraja’s son Yuvan is ready to debut in Bollywood as a music director for actor Emraan Hashmi’s next film, to be helmed by Kunal Deshmukh.

Yuvan’s talent has been compared with that of Oscar-winner A.R. Rahman.

“Yuvan is one of those music directors, whose music has universal appeal. A bit like A.R. Rahman, who did great in Tamil movies, then other southern languages, then Bollywood music and then Hollywood. Yuvan is a similar talent,” Manish Hariprasad, creative director, Studios, Disney UTV, said in a statement.

“Well, not every 26-year-old music director can boast of 100 films under his belt,” added Hariprasad.

Yuvan is said to have been looking for a good film to launch himself in Hindi films, revealed Hariprasad, adding: “It feels great that Disney UTV is the studio launching him”.
