      Will this be Maestro Ilaiyaraja's 1000th film? This is a world record. No other music director comes even close to having composed OST (songs and BGM) for 1000 films. As for his ociation with Balki, kya kehna? Here's looking forward to the dynamic combination of Balki-Amitabh and Ilaiyaraja's music! Wow!
