Maestro Ilayaraja, the legendary music composer of Indian film music who has been the dominant force in his profession for over three decades, has won several awards and honours in his career.
Having worked in over 800 films in various Indian languages and English, Ilayaraja has indeed become a phenomenon in the industry. He has won the National Award thrice for his outstanding work.
Now the music maestro is going to add yet another feather to his cap for his talent and services to the film industry; the Andhra Pradesh government is going to confer upon him the prestigious NTR award.
The award will be presented to Ilayaraja at a grand function to be held in Hyderabad sometime later this year.
