Ace filmmaker Selvaraghavan and his wife Gitanjali Selvaraghavan have welcomed their new child and it is a boy baby. Gitanjali took to her social media pages to share this good news with the followers and fans. The couple has named the newborn, Rishikesh Selvaraghavan, who was born early this morning (January 7). We hope and wish Gitanjali and director Selvaraghavan create some beautiful and ever-lasting memories with the newborn. Rishikesh is the couple’s third child. They already have a daughter named Lilavathi and a son named Omkaar.

Sharing the good news with everyone, Gitanjali wrote on her Instagram page, “Rishikesh Selvaraghavan came into this world and our hearts earlier this morning, 7th January 2021 Healthy and happy. A big Thank you to each and everyone of you for all your blessings and good wishes! Truly touched by the support and love you've all shown us. Believe me The feeling is mutual! You guys are the best! Lots of love, Gitanjali, Selvaraghavan, Lilavathi and Omkaar.”.

Wishes have been pouring in from all quarters for Selvaraghavan and Gitanjali and we are sure that the entire family is elated and happy. Selvaraghavan got married to Gitanjali in June 2011 and there has been no look back since then. Gitanjali has been an instrumental part of Selvaraghavan's life and we've seen the maverick filmmaker express his love for her in several instances in the past. Gitanjali had worked as an assistant director in Selvaraghavan's Mayakkam Enna and she later got to direct the film, Maalai Nerathu Mayakkam.

On the directorial front, Selvaraghavan is currently working on his 12th film (tentatively called S12) that stars Dhanush in the lead role. This film is produced by Kalaipuli S Thanu under the banner of V Creations and has music scored by Yuvan Shankar Raja. The photoshoot for the film happened very recently and Selvaraghavan shared a glimpse of it on social media. This film is said to be a fresh script and does not have any connection to Pudhupettai or Aayirathil Oruvan.

Selvaraghavan will also be making his highly ambitious project, Aayirathil Oruvan 2 which has got phenomenal expectations among the fans. Aayirathil Oruvan got a cult status a few years after its release and the fans are now all geared up for its sequel. Aayirathil Oruvan 2, which stars Dhanush in the lead role, is scheduled to release in 2024. For now, check out Gitanjali Selvaraghavan’s Instagram post about the birth of their new child here:
