Kamal Haasan Mourns The Loss Of SPB

Kamal Hasaan was probably the last person from the industry to visit SPB as he met him in the hospital just yesterday. He would feel lucky to get a glimpse of a legendary singer before he left the world. After his death, Kamal said:

β€œIt wasn’t not just because he was someone who I regarded highly but because he had been with me during my high and my low. He was so emotional about me that even when you say nice things about me, he would start feeling emotional and that’s one reason why, in case you want to make SPB cry, you just say nice things about me and you will see him wiping away his tears.”

The Loss Of SPB Saddens Rajnikanth

Rajnikanth was the next in line which has used the voice of SPB in movies, lip-syncing to the music done correctly. He put out a whole video expressing his grief and also tweeted:

β€œBalu sir … you have been my voice for many years … your voice and your memories will live with me forever … I will truly miss you …”
