It's well known that Prasad Studios and legendary music composer Ilaiyaraaja are at loggerheads over the latter's music studio in Saligramam, Chennai.
Earlier, many directors and producers requested the management of Prasad Studios to allow Ilaiyaraaja to conduct his recording inside Prasad Studios where he has been working for the last forty years.
Almost all the songs composed by Ilaiyaraaja were conducted and recorded at the Prasad Studios. But the new management of Prasad Studios clearly said 'no ' so Ilaiyaraaja was looking for an alternate option.
Now, we hear that Ilaiyaraaja has bought the MM Preview Theater in Kodambakkam and converting it as his own recording studio. Sources say that the new state-of-the-art studio will start functioning from September of this year.
Raja Studios is said to be the chosen name and soon, an official announcement will be made by the legendary composer.
