Oscar-winning sound designer Resul Pookutty says meeting actor, writer, composer and filmmaker T Rajendar was truly moving. He considers the veteran as the original balladeer of Tamil filmdom.

"Happened to meet the original ballard of Tamil cinema director T Rajendar. I'm so moved by him, uninhibited mark of a true talent," Resul tweeted on Tuesday.

Having started his career as an actor, writer and composer with 1980 Tamil film "Oru Thalai Ragam", T Rajendar went on to star in nearly 50 films over a career spanning two decades.

"A sense a burning passion in him more like in the folk tradition, his songs and monologues are still a sensation for me," he wrote, and added that it was humbling to know A.R Rahman and Sivamani (percussionist) were Rajendar’s music companions in those times.

T Rajendar is currently busy shooting for a yet-untitled K.V Anand Tamil directorial.
