Shriya Saran, Sharman Joshi, Shaan and Prakash Raj to star in Ilaiyaraaja’s multi-lingual musical titled Music School; first poster out


On Tuesday, March 28, at an event in Hyderabad, graced by the presence of renowned film producer and distributor Dil Raju, the makers of Shriya Saran, Sharman Joshi, Shaan and Prakash Raj's film Music School unveiled the first poster of the Ilaiyaraaja’s multi-lingual musical with a bunch of kids driving through the picturesque locations of Goa. Depicting the serious subject of academic pressure endured by young school kids in a light-hearted and entertaining approach via music, the film has a total of 11 songs that drive the narrative of the film. Three out of eleven songs are from The Sound of Music, which were woven beautifully into this Indian Musical. 

An IAS officer with an inspiring passion for cinema- Paparao Biyyala, who makes his debut as a writer and director with Music School shared, “The persistent pressure of performance on young students by parents, teachers and society, more often than not, becomes the main obstacle in the child’s growth. Though it is a serious subject, I have attempted to tell the story in an entertaining way through a truly musical format."
