Says Yuvan Shankar Raja, 'I am here sustaining because of the love of my fans and music lovers. For me it looks as if I came only yesterday.
The ups and downs during this period had not deterred me. Music is my passion and only the years of my role as a film's music director can be counted and not my stature as a basic music composer.
I am a born musician and will remain the same until last. I deeply thank them from my heart for all their support in all these years.
I take this opportunity to thank all my Producers, Filmmakers, the stars, media and the fans for imposing faith on me. I am grateful to my father for molding and growing me up with a sound attitude that could let me concentrate on music.
My 20th year will be marked by the production of my maiden film as a producer 'Kolaiyudhir Kalam'. Talks are on to announce my next project at the earliest'.
