Ilayaraja was rumored to perform in a music concert in Sri Lanka. While the event is yet to be confirmed, a group of protestors led by Periyar Dravida Kazhagam surrounded his house.
They raised slogans against Ilayaraja and at least 30 protestors were there who were later arrested by the police department. Ilayaraja’s team later confirmed that they got an invite to perform in Sri Lanka but the music director didn’t confirm the visit yet. Police protection has been temporarily provided for his home.
