Talking about the 74-year-old, who passed away on Friday due to cardiac arrest following a long battle against Covid-19, Bachchan stated, “The pandemic claims yet another gem .. the voice of great divinity and soul.”
On his blog, Bachchan wrote, “In the middle of the work schedule, the mind works at a tangent that brings emotion for the departed – SP Balasubrahmanyam, the God gifted voice gone silent .. and day on day the very special have left us for the heavens .. and as they would often say ‘to a better place’ .. the pandemic claims yet another gem .. the voice of great divinity and soul.”
The megastar recalled the time he had met SPB, “Long years ago at a function I had had the honour of meeting him .. a simple modest human, despite the immense celebrity he was bestowed with.”
“But the work continues .. life needs the momentum to keep moving ..and so we do,” the actor concluded.
