However the tension eased when the legendary music composer had a telephonic conversation with the press people gathered to collect news about the Kings of Kings concert that is going to take place in Malaysia on December 28th. Isagnani said that he is fine now and asserted that he will sure participate in the concert with his sons Yuvan Shankar Raja and Karthik Raja.
The said telephone conversation was videoed and uploaded in internet, with the good intention of offering earlier relief to the thousands of online fans.
Now the sources from the hospital have confirmed that Raja Sir is completely normal and there is nothing to worry about is health. The source was also quoted saying that IR had been shifted to normal ward immediately after initial treatment yesterday, and he is likely to be discharged from Hospital tomorrow.
Though Ilayaraja’s health has been improved Doctors have advised rest for him. There is only four days gap for The King of Kings Concert. When the organizers asked whether the concert can be postponed after New year’s day, Raja has rejected the idea stating that he does not find any reason to postpone the planned event and also assured that he will come back soon and the Malaysian concert can be held as scheduled.
