image Music maestro Illayaraja’s wife Jeeva (57) passed away in Chennai on Monday night due to sudden cardiac arrest.  The Isaignani, who was in Hyderabad to compose music for a Telugu movie, rushed back to Chennai by a flight on hearing the news.

It is said that Jeeva complained of severe chest pain around 9 pm on Monday. She was immediately admitted to a leading hospital in the city where doctors gave her emergency treatment, but could not save her life.

Top personalities of Tamil and other film industries have expressed their condolences over the sudden death of Jeeva and have been making a beeline to Illayaraja’s house at Murugesan Street in T Nagar.

Jeeva was a pillar of support to the maestro for more than three decades and the couple has three children- Karthik Raja, Yuvan Shankar Raja and Bhavadharini- with all of them having established themselves in the music industry.
