एस पी बालासुब्रमण्यम जी के जाने का सुनकर मन की गहराइयों तक एक दर्द भरी टीस उठी।एक दो बार उन्हें मिलने का सौभाग्य प्राप्त हुआ था।उनकी आवाज़ में तो जादू था ही था। उनकी मुस्कुराहट भी आत्मा तक पहुँचती थी। प्रभु उनकी आत्मा को शांति प्रदान करें।भावपूर्ण श्रद्धांजली। ओम शान्ति ओम।🙏🙏 pic.twitter.com/Suzjo47rpc

SP Balasubrahmanyam was admitted to MGM hospital in August after he was tested positive for COVID-19. While doctors had advised him to observe home quarantine, he insisted on getting admitted for his family's safety. While his coronavirus report came in negative on September 4, his condition didn't improve but got deteriorated further. The actor was on life support since the last couple of days but eventually lost his long battle.
We at LatestLY pray for his departed soul to rest in peace.
