Music composers should give up electronic instruments and try to create music with real instruments. It will touch the heart of music-lovers, said maestro Ilayaraja.

Speaking at the audio launch of Yuvan Shankar Raja's production venture ‘Pyar Prema Kadhal’, Ilayaraja, said, “I pray Yuvan's new venture turns out to be successful.”

Directed by Elan, the movie has music by Yuvan and it stars ‘Bigg Boss’ fame Harish Kalyan and Raiza Wilson.

Elan said, “After making short films, I got an opportunity to work with Fox Star Studios. But it didn’t happen due to some reasons. After realising the reality of cinema, I tried my best to write a new script based on love. Surprisingly, I got a call from Yuvan Shankar Raja. I was excited to hear that Yuvan would be composing music. This is how ‘Pyaar Prema Kadhal’ happened.”

For his part, Yuvan Shankar Raja, said, “It's been a long time since I decided to produce films and finally it has happened now. I composed the song 'High on Love' even before this project. ‘Pyaar Prema Kadhal’ is a beautiful love story that will definitely go down well with the audience.”
