All roads led to YMCA Nandanam where maestro Ilayaraja performed live as part of the mega event organised by Tamil Film Producers Council Sunday. Amidst thunderous applause, Ilayaraja took to stage to belt out his hit numbers of 1980s and 90s to a packed venue. People thronged in large numbers to enjoy his music. As he began with Janani Janani, fans cheered and applauded every song of his. A four hour concert filled with wonderful numbers including a few sung by Kamal Haasan.
Union Minister Pon Radhakrishnan took to stage to humour Ilayaraja. Interestingly Ilayaraja shared fee details of his recording of those songs as he was performing on stage yesterday.
An orchestra from abroad accompanied him on stage. Vishal thanked Ilayaraja for the show and said he deserves greater honours. Fans said that this has been one of the best convert and Raja is always Raja.
