A few years ago, SV Ramanan praised Anirudh’s growth in the film industry and said that he was really proud of his grandson in an interview with the Times of India. He was quoted as saying, “Anirudh is one of the top music directors in south India today. What I’m impressed about him is that he is not at all aware of his celebrity status that he has become a big music director, or has so much craze among youngsters, especially girls. These things have not gone into his mind. He’s someone who goes out of his way to help people.”
