Chennai: One of India’s greatest music directors, Ilaiyaraaja, said on Tuesday that everything in the world had to change, but the only thing that would stay the same was love.
He made the observation in a response to director Aishwaryaa Rajinikanth, who posted a series of photos on social media about a recent encounter she had with him.
Aishwaraya said, “My Monday lunchtime couldn’t have been more musical and magical. Always a pleasure spending time with my dearest Uncle Ilaiyaraaja. #mondayvibes #workmodeon.”
Responding to her tweet on Tuesday, Ilaiyaraaja said, “I am happy to meet and hang out. Many things can happen in life, but one thing will never change: my true love. God bless you. Be always happy. Everything has to change. But one thing will stay the same, and that’s love.”
The music director also posted a YouTube link to Quincy Jones’ “Everything Must Change” number.
Speculation is rife in the film industry if Ilaiyaraaja is composing the music for Aishwaryaa Rajinikanth’s upcoming film as the filmmaker, in her tweet, had the phrase “work mode on” hashtag.
