After the wake of the recent copyright issue where Maestro Illayaraja had issued a legal notice to SP Balasubramaniam, Chitra and Charan, there has been a lot of discussion in media and many prominent people from the industry are expressing their opinions on this. SPB himself has requested his fans and media not sensationalise the issue and not to get judgemental. SP Balasubramaniam is currently on an international tour for his SPB 50 concert and is performing at various cities in United States. Recently in one of his performance at the San Jose, the singer was performing the song 'Unakkenna Mele Nindrai' song from the Kamal Hassan movie 'Simla Special' and reportedly got emotional while singing the line 'Yaar Yaaro Nanban Yendru, Yemaandha Nejam Ondru' reciting it repeatedly. This incident could be seen as a reflection of his current rift with his long time friend Illayaraja. Later while speaking to media he told that actor Kamal Hassan contacted him over phone and spoke for almost an hour extending his emotional support on the ongoing controversy.
