Actor-politician Kamal Haasan has expressed gratitude to Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Jagan Mohan Reddy for urging the Central government to confer the Bharat Ratna upon singer SP Balasubrahmanyam.
“Thank you Honourable CM of Andhra Pradesh. @AndhraPradeshCM. The honour you seek for our brother Shri.S.P.Balasubramaniam is a sentiment which true fans of his voice will echo, not only in Tamilnadu but throughout the whole nation,” Kamal posted.
In his letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Andhra CM recommended the name of Balasubrahmanyam, popularly known as SPB, for the highest civilian award of the country.
Stating that Andhra Pradesh was fortunate to be the birthplace of the great singer, Jagan said the untimely demise of SPB had caused a lot of distress to millions of fans across the country and also the international music fraternity.
“SPB’s immense popularity and the deep impact he had left on the global music industry in his 50 years of legacy can be gauged by the continuous flow of rich tribute from music aficionados all over the world,” Jagan added.
