Actor R Madhavan believes that the skill of famous playback singer SP Balasubrahmanyam was similar to that of Kishore Kumar.
“I listened to Kishore Kumar today. When I hear a singer sing passionate songs, and you can feel it through the speakers after 30 years, can you imagine being in person while singing it. The kind of magic that Kishore Da possessed. I think if not, SP Balasubrahmanyam has the same, ”Madhavan told Indianexpress.com.
After battling for life in the hospital for nearly two months, SPB died on 25 September due to coronovirus complications. “When that person is around you, you never take the opportunity to celebrate them like you do when they are not with you. Suddenly, the fact that he is no longer with us, you are never going to see his face and you will never listen to him and his vision for life is shocking. You feel a deep sense of loss, ”the actor said.
Madhavan also regrets that he was relieved by the death of SPB. “Balasubrahmanyam sir was always relieved to know this. I always felt comfortable that I would get a song worth it and maybe he would sing a song for my film. Now he is relaxed.
The actor said that he was also overwhelmed by the thought that perhaps SPB had not been celebrated while he was still alive. “And you guys sent her songs on social media and gave you your opinion about her. I wish we had done this while he was alive. I wish we would have celebrated them a lot when we were alive. He said that I have a lot of emotions at the moment, because we have really lost a talent. ”

“Swarg is lucky because Sahab is going to heaven as his happy and breaking jokes. And we are going to feel zero, ”he said.
Madhavan is currently shooting in Dubai for his upcoming web series Seventh Samvedna. And he is also awaiting the release of his film Nishabdam. The film will premiere on October 2 on Amazon Prime Video.
