Illayaraja during Valmiki Audio Release

Illayaraja, who is usually hard to see in the audio release functions, was unusually present during the audio release of the movie "Valmiki".

Nevertheless, Raaja being outspoken ends up in one or other controversy. Here is Raaja's speech during audio release function of the movie "Valmiki".

For IR lovers, here you go:
