AR Rahman shares great on-stage moments with legend

On Saturday night, the YMCA grounds in Chennai was overflowing with celebrities and music lovers who were fortunate to witness the opening day of the "Ilayaraja 75" organized by the Tamil Film Producers Council (TFPC).  The crowd was treated to a rarest of rare historical moment as A.R. Rahman took the stage and played the keyboard while Ilayaraja sang a classic from his 'Mouna Raagam'.

Ilayaraja reminisced that Rahman had worked with him in close to 500 films.  At this, the latter intervened and said that it is an honor to even work with him for one film.

The '2.0' music director joked that when he first met him, it was like being in front of a headmaster.  He also stated that the discipline of Ilayaraja was what inspired him to also be the same way and break the wrong notion that people had on musicians.
