Bollywood actor Amitabh Bachchan paid tribute to SP Balasubrahmanyam, calling the late singer a modest man despite towering achievements.
Balasubrahmanyam, 74, died on Friday after an over two month-long battle with coronavirus.
Writing on his blog on Saturday, Bachchan said SPB, as he was fondly called, had a "God gifted voice".
"In the middle of the work schedule, the mind works at a tangent that brings emotion for the departed - SP Balasubrahmanyam the God gifted voice gone silent. And day on day the very special have left us for the heavens and as they would often say 'to a better place.' The pandemic claims yet another gem, the voice of great divinity and soul (sic)," the actor wrote.

Bachchan posted a photo of the duo from an old event and said he was fortunate to have met the singer. "Long years ago at a function I had had the honour of meeting him. A simple, modest human, despite the immense celebrity he was bestowed with."

Balasubrahmanyam was laid to rest at his farmhouse on Saturday with a 24-gun salute by the Tamil Nadu Police.
