Islam conversionThe music composer embraced Islam and said it gives him inner peace and absolutely there is no need to hide that.
Yuvan also tweeted: "My family supports my decision and there is no misunderstanding between me and my dad".
While we tried to reach Yuvan regarding this, a source close to the music director revealed, "Yuvan was very attached to his mother and soon after she passed away, he started missing her a lot.
He also met a spiritual guru, but we cannot say what exactly made him follow Islam," and maintained that, he was definitely not inspired by fellow composer AR Rahman (who had converted to Islam) in his decision.
"He has been doing namaz five times a day all these months. He is not missing his prayers even when he is at work and ensures that he allots time for it at his studio as well," said the source.
