Late Legendary singer SP Balasubramaniam's final rituals and funeral was held at his Red Hills farm house in Thiruvallur district of Tamil nadu which is 50 KMS far from Chennai.

SPB’s body was kept at his farmhouse for the general public to pay their respects. The funeral began at 11am. Hundreds of people gathered to bid a teary farewell to the musical genius, who is survived by his wife, son and daughter.

Thalapathy Vijay, an ardent fan of SP Balasubrahmanyam paid his last respects by attending the funeral. Vijay consoled SPB's son S P Charan with folded hands and a hug. Vijay was the only A-list actor attended the funeral of the legendary singer SP Balasubrahmanyam.

The pictures of the actor at the funeral and consoling the deceased's son SP Charan have gone viral among the Kollywood fans. The gesture of actor Vijay visiting the funeral irrespective of COVID 19 risk, was being hailed by his fans in social media platforms. Director-actor Venkat Prabhu posted picture of Vijay paying tribute to the singer captioning "Respect".

Doctor Sumanth Raman, a TV personality, political analyst and a sports anchor, quoted Venkat Prabhu's tweet and posted message criticizing other actors who did not attend the funeral of the singer. He wrote, "When those who benefited a lot more from #SPB songs than @actorvijay chose to stay away this was a heartwarming gesture by Vijay. Respect indeed." in his tweet.

This has paved the way for a negative trend on social media sites where the fans of Vijay are attacking other actors who failed to show up at SPB's funeral. Notably, Rajinikanth and Ajith Kumar have come under the scanner since they were considered to be close to the legendary singer.

SPB was a good friend of Rajinikanth during his career of four decades and the singer had given plenty of hit numbers to the superstar. Considered to be a lucky charm, intro songs to the superstar in movies use vocals of SPB, which always struck a chord with the viewers.

On the other hand, it was SPB, who helped Ajith in his early days of film career. In an interview SPB revealed that he had introduced Ajith to the cine industry, getting him a role as a hero in Tollywood through a Telugu producer. Moreover SP Charan and Ajith were classmates and Ajith used to wear SP Charan's outfits for sentimental reasons for ad shoots.

Meantime, Sumanth's tweet irked the fans of Ajith and Rajinikanth who said that their presence on SPB's funeral will cause a crowd gathering which will lead to more COVID 19 cases. Rajinikanth and Ajith fans trashed Sumanth for his tweet on blaming other actors.
