Veteran singer SP Balasubramaniam died on Friday. He was hospitalized for the last few months. SP Balasubrahmanyam, who has been recognized in South India, sang for the first time in Hindi for the 1981 Hindi film 'Ek Duje Ke Liye'. SP Balasubramaniam has sung for almost every superstar in India, from Kamal Haasan, Rajinikanth, MGR, to Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan. Balasubrahmanyam, who made a Guinness record of singing about 40000 songs, regretted one thing for his life.
Balasubrahmanyam once said that he could not see his children growing up and that he would always regret this in life. In 2015, he entered the 50th year of his career. Her singing for the South Indian film 'Sankarabharanam' and the 1981 hit film Ek Duje holds a special place in her career. Shankarabharanam, a 1980 Telugu film about classical music and western music, earned him much fame and also a National Award.
Balasubrahmanyam, who was found corona positive on August 5, once said- I could never give time to my children because of my busy schedule. But my professional life was very good. Balasubrahmanyam told PTI in an interview five years ago- it is amazing. I don't know how I stayed for so long. I am not a trained singer either. Surprisingly, even at this age, I am getting work and I am able to do it.
Balasubrahmanyam had said- I did not see my children growing up. I devoted my 50 years to singing. I am working for 11 hours every day. I miss my children. In life, he also regretted not learning classical music and not getting an engineering degree. SP Balasubramaniam is left behind by his wife Savitri and two children - daughter Pallavi and son SP Charan.
As a singer, Balasubramanian has also acted as an actor, music director, dubbing artist, and film producer. He lent his voice to several songs for Salman Khan's films which proved to be a super hit. He won 6 National Film Awards for Best Male Playback Singer. SP Balasubramanian was awarded the Padma Shri in 2001 and the Padma Bhushan Award in 2011.
