I am not sure if it is posted already here.

It is kind of late when I heard about that.

My Heartfelt condolences.

Me too like all of his compositions.

The last time I saw him was in Sangeetha maha Yutham -2 preview show.

He looked very sick as if he is going to break any time. Was wondering what'sup and saw this news.

Anajlis again.
