“When Imman gave us Kannana Kanney, I couldnt help recall my first film Moondraam Pirai’s Kanney Kalaimaane, which was composed by maestro Ilaiyaraja. I told my unit that this song would be accepted just like Kanne Kalaimaane for generations to come,” he added. Being an industry veteran of over four decades, Thyagarajan said that cinema has evolved by leaps and bounds. “Technically, cinema has changed a lot. However, be it the 80’s or 2020, content is the key. People will come to theatres, only when content is good. That is the reason why people still watch Baasha and Moondram Pirai even when it is aired today,” he told us.
