A.R.Rahman, who attended the event day before yesterday, said that “Ilayaraja is my headmaster. I have learnt a lot from him. When I look at him, I’m amazed that a person can be like this too. We both have a bad habit, and that is music. Even when I’m awarded, Ilayaraja’s words of appreciation make me happy, because maestro’s don’t appreciate that easily, and when he appreciates, it’s because there’s real talent.”
Music maestro Ilayaraja has scored the music for more than 1,000 films and 5,000 songs. He has also rendered 500 numbers and won the national award five times. To honour his achievements, Tamil Film Producers Council is felicitating ‘Isai Gnani’ with a two-day function at a gala event titled Ilayaraja 75. Top actors and technicians from all south Indian languages including Tamil, Telugu, Kannada and Malayalam, besides Hindi who have worked with the maestro attended the event and shared their experiences with the music maestro.
After attending the event and the moment that A.R Rahman shared with his master on stage, the tow Oscar holder came up with a meme which is winning thousands of hearts in social media. More of a meme it looks like a collage of two photos in which one of the picture contains A.R Rahman learns from Ilayaraja years ago and the other one from the event Ilayaja 75.
A.R Rahman added a caption as “33 years later with the Maestro, What a great feeling ! #EllamPugazhumIraivanukke”
