Since Friday morning a large number of police personnel were deployed outside the hospital.

The singer’s family members were all present at the hospital.

Famed Director Bharathiraja after visiting Balasubrahmanyam at the hospital told the media at this time of grief he was not able to speak anything.

“Even now there is some ray of hope. There is one power above us all,” an emotional Bharathiraja said.

It was movie Director Venkat Prabha who first tweeted about the singer’s death.

Prabhu tweeted “#RIPSPB 1:04pm” announcing the sad news.

On August 5, in a Facebook post, the 74-year old SPB said that he was suffering from a very mild attack of coronavirus and had got himself hospitalised to take rest.

He had said that though the doctors had advised him to stay at home and take rest, he decided to be in a hospital, as at home his family members would get concerned.

Cricketer Virat Kohli’s sweet exchange with his wife, actor Anushka Sharma, is going viral. In a video, he is seen on the field as he gestures to her, asking if she has eaten. She gave him a thumbs-up from the stands. They are then seen having a brief conversation through hand gestures.

The video is from the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL), which is taking place in the UAE. Anushka came to cheer for Virat and his team Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in their match against the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) on Sunday. She was seen in a red dress and large golden hoop earrings.


Anushka is often spotted in the stands during RCB’s matches. Earlier this month, she was seen clapping for Virat and even blowing kisses at him as he hit a half-century against CSK.

Virat and Anushka are expecting their first child in January. They shared the happy news on Instagram, along with the caption, “And then, we were three! Arriving Jan 2021.”

Last month, Anushka said that motherhood was ‘humbling’. Sharing a picture of herself, she wrote on Instagram, “Nothing is more real & humbling than experiencing creation of life in you. When this is not in your control then really what is?” Virat showered love on the photo and commented, “My whole world in one frame.”

Recently, Virat shared a picture of him and Anushka, taking a dip in the sea. The photo, a silhouette, was captured by his RCB teammate AB de Villiers.

Anushka was last seen on the big screen in 2018 in Aanand L Rai’s Zero, which also starred Shah Rukh Khan and Katrina Kaif. Though she has not announced her next project as an actor yet, she has been busy with her production ventures, such as Amazon Prime Video series Paatal Lok and Netflix original film Bulbbul.
