As part of your professional journey if you are attaining success at every turn and keep crossing different milestones, you become a legend. And sometimes, few legends set such high benchmarks that it gets hard to find successors for such achievements.

The classic example for that is musical maestro Ilaiyaraaja. He has got a whopping 40 years of legacy and all those who are 35 plus connect to him strongly. Due to that, whenever shows are organized in US, no matter how many they are, they are always housefuls.

Many strongly opine that nobody can beat Ilaiyaraaja in terms of his following. Though the young generation stars such as Devi Sri Prasad, Thaman can come with shows but it is not upto this range. Also, Ilaiyaraaja is almost equal to god for Tamilians and during his overseas concerts, many are seen falling at his feet and weeping out of happiness. Can you beat that?
