Thalapathy Vijay attended the funeral of SP Balasubrahmanyam and paid his last respects. Following this, fans of the actor trolled Rajinikanth and Ajith Kumar for skipping it.
Legendary singer SP Balasubrahmanyam died after a long battle with health complications following COVID-19 infection. He was cremated on September 26 with state honours. Before this, his mortal remains were kept at his farmhouse for fans and public to pay homage.
Kollywood actor Vijay was the only A-list actor who paid his last respects to the veteran singer. The visuals of the actor at the funeral and consoling SPB's son SP Charan has gone viral on social media.
Sadly, this has paved the path for a negative trend on digital media sites where fans of Vijay are criticising other actors who did not attend SP Balasubrahmanyam's funeral. Prominently trolled were Rajinikanth and Ajith Kumar because they were considered to be very close to the deceased singer.
Yes, Balasubrahmanyam was a friend of Rajinikanth for four decades. The late singer had given plenty of hit numbers and his voice to the intro songs to the superstar of Tamil industry in his movies.
Also, SP Balasubrahmanyam had helped Thala Ajith Kumar in his initial days in the film industry. SPB's son SP Charan and Ajith were classmates. They finished their matriculation in Andhra. In his early days, Ajith used to wear Charan's shirts and shoes for ad shoots over sentimental reasons.
Once SPB said that "Ajith first acted in a Telugu movie which was produced by me."
However, being so close to the deceased singer's family, Rajinikanth and Ajith Kumar did not turn up for the funeral. As a result of which, fans of Thalapathy Vijay are trolling the top actors of Tamil Cinema.
