Ilayaraja hospitalised due to mild attack
Ilayaraja, 70, fondly addressed as 'maestro,' was likely to undergo an angioplasty procedure, sources said, adding, he has been advised rest for a few days.
He was, however, stable, they added.
Ilayaraja's latest work, 'Thalaimuraigal' (Generations) had hit the screens recently, earning critical acclaim for the movie's plot and the composer's tunes.
National award-winning Ilayaraja has produced some of the biggest musical hits of Tamil cinema for actors including veterans Rajnikanth and Kamal Haasan, and has worked with top filmmakers spanning nearly 40 years including Maniratnam and Gautham Menon.
