He respected each and every single soul and never spread anything other than love. He was a lovable person. Indian music industry has produced various legendary singers, but SPB was one of the very few who had the capability to sing in various languages. His majestic voice was loved by everyone. The owner of the voice is now no more with us. But, his voice will definitely be heard for years to come. His demise is worrying and saddening. He was a legend. I pray for his soul to rest in peace. My condolences to his family,”.

SP Balasubrahmanyam has lent his voice for numerous songs in Rajinikanth’s films and he has sung the most number of intro songs for the legendary actor. His songs have played an instrumental role in Rajini’s films. Notably, he sung the intro songs of Rajinikanth’s last two films, Petta (Marana Mass) and Darbar (Chumma Kizhi). Though there has been no official confirmation yet, it is said that the legendary singer has already recorded for the intro song of Rajini’s upcoming film, Annaatthe, which has music scored by D Imman. If it happens to be true, then the song is definitely going to make everyone more emotional. Rajinikanth also shared a very good friendship with SPB and it must definitely be a personal loss for him.
