Isaignani Ilaiyaraaja has urged film-makers to shun violence and bloodshed while penning the scripts and during making films. “The usage of sickle and blood has been increasingly becoming order of the day while making the scripts. I request them to shun blood and violence to the maximum possible extent and instead spread the message of love and brotherhood,” said the Maestro.
Ilaiyaraaja, who doesn’t often take part in audio-launches and press-meets, was the surprise package at the meet-the-press event held in connection with the impending release of the film Sengaathu Boomiyilae (SB). The film, incidentally, has been set to score by the Maestro himself and directed by Rathnakumar. Speaking at the event, Ilaiyaraaja lauded the film and said it was probably the only film against violence and made with intent in recent times.
