Notice sent to S. P. Balasubrahmanyam for performing Ilayaraja's composition
New Delhi , Mar. 20 : Playback singer S. P. Balasubrahmanyam, who has been sent a legal notice by music maestro Ilayaraja for singing his compositions without his permission at an ongoing music tour, has termed the incident as 'unfortunate' and requested 'all friends, music lovers and especially all media persons, not to make I.Raja-SPB issue sensational.'
S. P. Balasubrahmanyam, who has rendered many hits composed by Ilayaraja over the past some decades, said now he cannot perform on Ilayaraja's compositions following the legal notice.
"As I said earlier, I am ignorant of the law. If it is a law, so be it and I obey it. In these circumstances, our troupe cannot perform Isaijnani's compositions from today. But the show should happen. By God's grace I have sung lots of other composer's songs too which we will present. Hope you all will bless our concerts as usual. I am always grateful for your love and affection," he added.
