Maestro Ilayaraja has two sons Karthik Raja and Yuvan Shankar Raja. He has also a daughter Bhavatharini. All of them are involved in playback singing and music composing.
Yuvan Shankar Raja who had completed his 100th film Biryani had already divorced his first wife. Later on he married another girl. Now it is understood that there is rift between the two.
At this juncture Yuvan Shankar Raja who is a Hindu has now embraced Islamism. Yuvan Shankar Raja while speaking about this said, ” I have embraced Islamism. My father Ilayaraja and family members are supporting me. There is news that I am married for the third time. This news is false.”
