Ilayaraja and Gangai Amaran have no reasons to be angry at each other. Apart from being brothers they are also very successful music directors and film directors too. In spite of all this they seem to nurse some grudge against each other. Recently Gangai Amaran disclosed that his brother had even told Kamal Hassan not to do a film, which he was about to do the music for. In the film Chinnavar, directed by Ganga Amaren the music was composed by his brother.
Apparently Ilayaraja told the producer that he would even give up music if the film turned out to be a hit. Curiously the music of the film was done by Raja himself. However when the film was released the movie starring Kasturi and Prabhu went on to become a huge hit. Of course Raja did not give up music instead he continued to sulk. Wonder what can bring the two brothers together again. For all you know the entire story is a trick to whip up some enthusiasm for this project
