Actors Rajinikanth, Amitabh Bachchan, Kamal Haasan and Sridevi Tuesday came together to celebrate the 1,000th film of music composer Ilaiyaraaja at the music launch of “Shamitabh”, where the maestro was felicitated in the presence of the entire star cast of the film.

The event also saw a live performance by Big B and Dhanush, apart from other singers and music composers.

“Thank you for whatever you have given to this industry. I am your devoted fan. Your music is a big inspiration. I am not a trained actor, but accidentally became an actor… It is because of your music that I have made it so far. My every inspiration comes form your music,” Dhanush said.

R.Balki, however, clarified that “Shamitabh” was not Ilayaraja’s 1,000th film. “Director Bala’s film is the 1,000th film of Ilayaraja,” he said.

Presented by Eros International and produced by RK Damani, Sunil Lulla, Gauri Shinde, Rakesh Jhunjhuwaala and Abhishek Bachchan, “Shamitabh” starring Big B, Dhanush and Akshara Haasan is scheduled to release Feb 6.
