Justice V Bharathidasan passed the order as the music composer and the studio owners failed to reach an amicable solution through mediation as suggested by the court.
Ilayaraja has been composing music at a recording theatre on the Prasad Studio campus for more than four decades and wants to continue to do so, whereas the studio management has sought to vacate him from its premises in Saligramam.
Aggrieved, Ilayaraja moved a city civil court seeking to restrain the owners of the studio or their agents from interfering in his free access to the composing room in the studio, which he was using for the past 40 years.
Subsequently, citing unreasonable delay by the civil court in disposing of the plea, Ilayaraja moved the present plea in the high court.
On December 4, Justice Bharathidasan directed the parties to appear before the mediation centre on the high court premises and try for an amicable solution to the dispute.
When the plea came up for hearing on Friday, Maestro’s counsel A Saravanan submitted he suggested to settle the dispute amicably if he was granted free access to the studio for two to three months to complete his ongoing works.
“Since the owners of the studio refused to provide the limited access, we could not arrive at an amicable solution,” Saravanan added.
Wondering why the management of the studio was not willing to accept the reasonable deal even though composing room was used by Maestro for over 40 years, the court directed the XV Assistant Judge, Chennai to dispose of the injunction plea moved by Ilayaraja in two weeks.
