GV, as he is known among friends, is the third and youngest music director to perform live on stage after Ilayaraja and AR Rahman. Rahman's mother, Kareema Begum, and his sisters were present to cheer him.
Another outstanding performance came from actor Dhanush and his wife who sang the peppy number Un Mele Aasadhaan.... along with Andrea.
To add to the fun was a fashion show, a Kalari performance, chenda melam by women from Kerala and a classical dance performance by actress Poorna.
Selva Raghavan, however, preferred to keep a low profile - he sat in the audience with his wife Sonia and enjoyed the show
