​Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari Share Her Humbling Experience With Ilaiyaraaja

Filmmaker Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari collaborated with music maestro Ilaiyaraaja for Amma Kanakku, a Tamil remake of her directorial debut Nil Batty Sannata and now the filmmaker shares her experience of working the musical legend.
Written and directed by Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari and produced by both Anand L. Rai and Dhanush, Amma Kanakku, a remake of the director’s own Hindi film Nil Battey Sannata. The film stars Amala Paul, Yuva Lakshmi, Revathi and Samuthirakani in the lead roles. It’s remade in Malayalam as Udaharanam Sujatha with Manju Warrier in lead.
Ashwiny Iyer just took to her social media and shared some candid still from the movie and wrote, “I had the humble opportunity to work with #ilayaraja sir Was told he is a man of less words but when he likes someone he would welcome them for his famous idli chutney breakfast. I did have the idli & making live music at prasad studios Chennai was a divine learning experience for life. After #nilbatteysannata I made #ammakanakku starring @amalapaul in Tamil & it was remade in Malayalam as #udaharanamsujatha starring @manju.warrier…Stories have a way to travel & reach millions hearts. Hoping I can continue to do so for a lifetime. #ilovemovies #lifeofafilmmaker #storytellersofindia #ammakanakku now streaming for overseas on @primevideoin #amalapaul #revati #samudrakani #ilayaraja”
Ashwiny Iyer teamed up with Kangana Ranaut and Neena Gupta for Panga, a movie about a new-age family that challenges stereotypes. The film released in January 2020 to rave reviews.
Ashwiny also ventured into short format with Ghar Ki Murgi, starring Sakshi Tanwar.
