A sudden flutter was created in the industry on Monday, when the news spread about Maestro Ilayaraja being hospitalised after suffering a heart attack.
However, much to the relief of his admirers and fans, it was announced later that the ‘Isaignani’ suffered only a minor cardiac arrest and he was fine under the care of doctors.
Also, sources said that he would be discharged in a day or two. Ilayaraja, who was busy composing for an upcoming movie at Prasad Studios Monday morning, felt uneasy. Later, when he was rehearsing for his Malaysia concert which is scheduled for December 28, he complained of chest pain. He was immediately rushed to a private hospital, where he is currently undergoing treatment.
