Music Director Ilaiyaraaja’s song at the Olympics?

The hottest buzz in filmdom is that one of maestro Ilaiyaraaja’s songs features in the song list for the opening ceremony of the upcoming Olympics Games to be held in London. The song, Naandhaan Ungappanda… from the 1981 film Ram Lakshman, starring Kamal Haasan and Sripriya, features among the list of 86 songs (which includes tracks from the likes of Adele, Sex Pistols, Amy Winehouse and Michael Jackson) that was apparently leaked to the British media.
The list also includes Paper Planes, the song by British singer of Tamil origin M.I.A. (which was also featured in the soundtrack of Slumdog Millionaire). Given that Danny Boyle, the director of the Oscar-winning film is also the artistic director of the London Olympics, there is a strong suspicion that the leaked list is in fact the official playlist.
The maestro’s spokespersons, however, said they had not been intimidated about any such developments.
