A section of Tamil film producers is upset with Ilaiyaraaja 75, the grand felicitation event organized by Tamil Film Producers Council to honor the music composer. Addressing the media, K Rajan, S Ve Shekhar, and J Satish Kumar revealed that Ilaiyaraaja was paid a whopping 3.5 crore rupees to perform in the event. Veteran producer K Rajan asked why TFPC paid the composer for his own felicitation event?
They also revealed that Vishal's close friends and actors Ramana and Nanda were paid 3.5 crore rupees to organize the event. The upset producers said that the music show didn't help any struggling producers and whatever Vishal had staged to the media is mere promotional gimmicks.
Earlier, actor Parthiepan also walked out of the event because of the intervention of Ramanna and Nanda.
