Music is his religion, language and universe. Isaignani Ilayaraja has the ruler of music over the ages and even after years of accomplishing with incomparable achievements, his achievements continue. Ilayaraja has been awarded for ‘Best Background Score’ (Pazhasi Raja).

Gleefully speaking to media channels, Ilayaraja said, “I have previously won 3 National awards.

Ilayaraja had previously won National awards for Sindhu Bhairavi (1986) and the Telugu films Rudraveena (1989) and Saagara Sangamam (1984)
