Being humble is my first priority - Legendary music director Vidyasagar

Legendary music composer Vidyasagar was one of the most sought after in all South Indian languages during the 1990s and 2000s. He churned out hit albums for almost all the films that he composed and some of his songs are still rated high by music lovers.

Vidyasagar's all time favorite film songs include 'Yaar Yaar Sivam' sung by Kamal Haasan, 'Malare Mounama' sung by SPB, "Devuda Devuda" sung by SPB for Rajini, Vijay's "Arjunaru Villu", Ajith's "Anbe Anbe" and countless others.

Vidyasagar got emotional when the first live concert that he conducted at the YMCA Grounds in Chennai on May 7th turned out to be a huge success. Right from the youth to senior citizens thronged the venue and cheered every song of his for close to seven hours. Actor Karthi and his sister Brinda, directors P. Vasu, Dharani, Radha Mohan, Karu Pazhaniappan and others attended as chief guests and spoke in length about working with him.

In a recent exclusive interview with IG Tamil, Vidyasagar shared his memories with us. He was asked what he thought about people calling him "Melody King" eventhough he has given super hit songs in many genres. His humble reply was that he took it as the love of people for him. He also stressed that he never took his success to his head and being humble was his first priority. There is more from Vidyasagar in the video below where he has shared may unknown things about him and his future plans in music.
