To everyone's shock, Ilayaraja served notices to SP Balasubrahmanyam & his music troupe, which is currently on a World Tour, asking them to face legal action if his composition were performed anywhere without his approval.
When Netizens suggested him to settle the issue with Maestro amicable with dialogue, SP Balasubrahmanyam replied: 'Dear friends, I could have certainly talked to him, had he talked or sent a mail to me prior to our tour. When I get a legal notice, either I have to respond legally, which I never want to, or accept the law. I too have self respect'.
The Legendary Singer urged people to stop making the issue bigger by holding serious discussions. He claims the sole intention behind sharing the news public is to prepare the audience. 'Neither I wish to cause any inconvenience to my good friend nor hurt the concert organizers/sponsors financially,' he concludes.
