Ilayaraja speaks about music

Music is always simple. And it’s natural. So it is wrong to claim that I simplified the way music is presented, said maestro Ilayaraja.

Answering to the queries of his fans in a popular vernacular weekly, the maestro said, ‘people believe that music is something gigantic. But for me, it is always something different and now.’

To a question as to whether he would insist directors to use a tune of his choice, Ilayaraja said, ‘I will tell them not to miss a particular tune if I like it. And they will sure take my words.’
