T Rajendar, commonly known as T.R is considered as a one man cinema for his versatile knowledge. He is an actor, director, producer, music composer, cinematographer, screenwriter and also playback singer.
However, he is most often roasted and mimicked to induce laughter, thanks to his extreme passion towards cinema which he expresses most often with zest.
The song is penned by Rokesh of 'Danga Maari' fame and is sung by famed musician Anirudh. It is dedicated to T.R, according to its composer D Imman.
But, surprisingly, T Rajendar is apparently upset with the team of Romeo Juliet for using his name and some of his film dialogues in the song. His reaction? A legal notice to stop the song and its related promos.
According to a source, T.R has confirmed that a legal action has been taken by his lawyer, who now might force the makers of the film to omit the song from the movie.
However, producer Nanthagopal has revealed that the song was crafted to praise T.R and not to disrespect him in any way. He also added that Jayam Ravi plays an ardent fan of him(T.R) and that the situation demanded the song.
"We are confident that T.R will understand our perspective, we are even ready to arrange a special screening for him if he is willing, we want to meet him in person to explain the reason for using his name in the song," he said.
