Leaving his millions of fans devastated, SP Balasubrahmanyam breathed his last on Friday. A singer par excellence, he was hospitalized for about 50 days after he contracted coronavirus in the first week of August. Although he tested negative earlier this month, his health was not back to normal.
Security has been beefed up at MGM Healthcare, Chennai. Film personalities and politicians are expected to turn up there.
SPB sang more than 40,000 songs in 16 Indian languages. An evergreen singer, he was magical across genres. Even after he became old, Balu's voice retained a certain youthfulness.
Thousands are taking to social media to express their pain over the sad news. Balu will be missed by the country.
Ragalahari joins the nation in this hour of grief. Om Shanti!
