The Indian Government announced the list of Padma Awardees, which are among some of the highest civilian honours, on the eve of Republic Day.
Although Bollywood has no recipients this year, late playback legend SP Balasubrahmanyam has been honoured posthumously with the Padma Vibhushan. Carnatic singer Chithra was awarded with Padma Bhushan, third highest honour while singer Bombay Jayashri Ramnath has been awarded with Padma Shri.
Balasubrahmanyam was a recipient of Padma Shri in 2001 and Padma Bhushan in 2011. On September 25, 2020, Balasubramanyam died in Chennai after being hospitalised for more than a month following Covid complications.
