The official fan club of Ilayaraja, which was floated at a grand event in Madurai recently, is planning big to celebrate the maestro’s birthday. On 3 June, 72,000 saplings will be planted across Tamil Nadu, to celebrate the 72nd birthday of the ‘Isaignani’. Arrangements are on in full swing. The fan club, led by Ilayaraja’s daughter Bhavatharini, is poised to do various good things. This will be a nice start for that, say sources in the know. On its official website, the fan club has posed details of its office-bearers for different areas. They can be contacted to get more details about the tree plantation programme.
