The celebrated composer decided to get a studio of his own after a spat with his former longtime collaborator Prasad Studios. For the uninitiated, the dispute began when Recording Theater-1, where Ilaiyaraaja had been working since the 70s, was allegedly ransacked by the property owners. The musician had sued Prasad Studios demanding Rs 50 lakh in compensation for allegedly removing his music instruments, damaging some equipment and stealing his music notes from the recording studio.
On the work front, the beloved musician has several projects lined for release, including the likes of Mamanithan, Thupparivaalan 2 among more.
