Isaignani Ilayaraja always had something special for Vijay movies. Kannukkul Nilavu, Kadhalukku Mariyadhai and Friends were some of the superhits from the combination. If sources are to be believed, we hear that Ameer who is likely to direct Kannabiran with Vijay in the lead, is keen to rope in the maestro for the film.
It can be recalled, in a recent function Ameer openly asked Ilayaraja if he would do the music for Kannabiran, for which the composer on a humourous note said that Yuvan will suit him better as his ( Ameer) hands have sword and blood stains. But, the relentless Ameer is persistent on his request and likely to go ahead persuading Ilayaraja to associate.
Let’s see if the Ameer–Ilayaraja combination could come up and enthrall fans!
