Ilaiyaraja and S.P Balasubramanyam have a long history of friendship and often said that they "are born for each other". Their career has also flourished like this with SPB singing more songs in Ilaiyaraja than any other composer.
Thus, when Ilaiyaraja decided to disseminate the opinions of Balasubramanyam regarding the issue of copyright, many were surprised and shocked by the incident. SPB spoke of it, saying he had been injured with his friend's decision, but he never criticized it. Ilaiyaraja, on the other hand, never spoke of this public and he never expressed any clarity for it.
As he is in Hyderabad to promote his concert which will take place on 5 November, the music director finally spoke of the press. He said, "I do not want to talk about the incident now, but if I have to talk about it, it will be completely different, it is better for us to leave the case. if I do not speak of the grandeur of the great, it will be a crime. "
Well, there is a rumor that Ilaiyaraja and SPB have become aware of the issue after the interference of several bigwigs in Chennai. Perhaps Ilaiyaraja does not want to spoil friendship by raking the wound!
