Music maestro Ilayaraja is celebrating his 71st birthday today (June 2). Isaignani Ilayaraja is the living legend of Tamil music. Now the maestro is nearing his 1000th film.
Ilayaraja hates the idea of celebrating his birthday by cutting cake or hosting parties. Recently Ilayaraja's official fan club was launched in Madurai, which has over 10 million registered members, including singers and musicians.
Meanwhile fans of Ilayaraja will plant 71,001 saplings across Tamil Nadu on the occasion of the maestro's birthday (June 2). Hundreds of volunteers from his recently formed official fan club will join hands to take part in the initiative.
