When people threw tantrums on him for claiming royalty for his songs, when they use it for commercial purposes, the legend “
” remained silent. A couple of days back, he requested the people to give a meager amount from the money they get for using his songs commercially. Ilaiyaraaja said that he is not claiming royalty for his songs, but the amount they receive for using his songs. He had already announced that the royalty amount would be collected not by him but the Cine Musicians Association. Raja sir had documented this and handed over it to the music director “
,” the leader of the association. Ilaiyaraaja had fought for the royalty rights not for him, but for the dwindled musicians, who didn’t get a chance due to the digital music. It is to be noted that he will not use the royalty amount received for his music. What a great man! Really, the man with the Golden Heart! Hats off to you, Raja Sir!
