Bharathiraja and Ilayaraja – the living legends have delivered fantabulous showpieces together. Off the late, the duo had split down due to some reasons and didn’t intend to work together.
But recently at a special juncture, the filmmaker sang praises of Karthik Raja saying, “Karthik has the ability to bring good music just like his father. But I am wondering how come, he’s drenched with certain constraints. Ilayaraja might have made his debut in tinsel town in someone else’s film, but he produced his first tune for my stage play back in time…”
Bharathiraja opted for other musicians in the early 90s as he started working contemporary musicians like A.R. Rahman, Sirpi, Vidhyasagar and Himesh Reshammiya.
