Ilaiyaraaja had recently visited Superstar Rajinikanth at his residence in Chennai. After the meeting, Rajinikanth had asked Ilaiyararaaja if he had any work, for which the music mastero had responded to him saying that he was heading to the rehearsal for his concert in Coimbatore.
Rajinikanth then invited himself for the rehearsal and took Ilaiayraaja on a ride in his own car.
