There were rumors on the internet that Ilaiyaraaja is upset with the way the management of Prasad Studios treated him and felt devastated on seeing his prestigious awards on the floor.
The rumors added that as both the Central Government and Statement Government didn't interfere in the issue, Ilaiyaraaja is planning to return the State and National Awards including the Padma Bhushan.
But the music composer denied the news saying that it's baseless speculation and he hasn't said any such thing to anyone.
Cine Music Association's President Dheena said that his words were twisted. According to Dheena, he only said that Ilaiyaraaja is upset with the whole issue and never said that he is planning to return back the prestigious awards
