Ilayaraja the Maestro in Indian music direction field said that no one ever reached the position he reached and he is waiting for a music director to reach his position. Speaking about his direction he said “When I compose songs, only others must talk about it. The person who composes them has nothing to say about it. Whatever he has to say, he has said it through the songs he has composed.”

Speaking about his relation with other music directors “The reason is, they have a very good opinion of themselves, which is why they fear me. For instance, why do you think a director feels shy to approach me? It is because the director wants to decide the music for his film. And he believes that I won’t let him do that.” `

“Will it be possible for me to suggest a change to sir?,’ is what he thinks. For every film, I get down to the level of the director and score music for them. There hasn’t been a director who has risen to my level and extracted work from me.”
