Minmini, the renowned singer of "Chinna Chinna Aasai" from Roja, recently shared her challenges and triumphs in the music industry. Despite the success of her hit song, she faced a decline in opportunities, particularly with music maestro Ilaiyaraaja, after collaborating with A.R. Rahman. Minmini revealed this revelation during a Malayalam show, having kept it hidden for years to preserve Ilaiyaraaja's reputation.

The emotional incident occurred when Ilaiyaraaja expressed disappointment upon learning about Minmini's collaboration with Rahman, suggesting that she should exclusively sing for him. This revelation left her shocked, leading to a tearful moment in the recording studio, witnessed by others including singer Mano, who provided support.

Unfortunately, Minmini's career was interrupted by a loss of voice, but she made a remarkable comeback in 2015. During her illness, she would cancel recordings out of concern for her performance. Notably, Rahman insisted on recording despite her illness, resulting in the unique recitation-based recording of "Pacha Kili Paadum" from Karuthamma.

Minmini's journey showcases the highs and lows of the music industry, highlighting her resilience and passion for singing. Her triumphant return to the world of cinema proves her enduring commitment to her craft.
