Chennai: Filmmaker Venkat Prabhu has confirmed that his uncle, maestro Ilayaraja, is absolutely fine and will be discharged later on Monday.
Ilayaraja was hospitalised on August 15.
"For all isaignani fans and well wishers out there! Raja pa is absolutely fine!! Just a general check up & few tests. He is back home 2day (sic)," Venkat posted on his Twitter page on Monday.
Ilayaraja was admitted to the Apollo Hospital here after he complained of pain in the abdomen. A family source had said that he was suffering from some gastric problem.
