He also said that such instances have taken place for a long time in Tamil cinema starting from K.V. Mahadevan’s times when M.S. Viswanathan entered the fray and similarly later when Ilayaraja entered the field. So he dismissed the fact that the movie was specifically about the dynamics between Ilayaraja and Rahman.
Earlier reports had suggested that S.J. Surya will play the role of Rahman while Prakash Raj would play the role of Ilayaraja. The film will also have S.J.Surya debuting as a music director.
