Controversy: Ilayaraja terms them impotent

Music director Ilayaraja slammed the young music directors using his old songs instead of creating new songs. He termed them as impotent. In recently released “96” Tamil movie, many of old songs composed by Ilayaraja were used.

Talking about this trend, Ilayaraja said that the music directors lack talent to create something new that reflects the era of 80’s or 90’s. Since they are impotent in performing new, the directors are using my old songs, he said.

This has created huge ruckus online. His choice of words didn’t go well with music lovers. The filmmakers had paid money for using those songs.
