Rajinikanth took to Twitter to remember SP Balasubrahmanyam and said the legendary singer will live forever
After a long time, it is raining updates for fans of Superstar Rajinikanth. The first look of Annaatthe, which is all set to hit the screens, was released almost a month ago. A motion poster which was unveiled later on the same day was a cherry on the cake for the star's fans.
Sun Pictures, who is bankrolling the project, had recently announced that the first single from the film, sung by none other than SP Balasubrahmanyam, will be released on Monday evening. Music director Imman had earlier revealed that the track, which will be the mandatory intro song in Rajini-starrers, was the last song for which the legend had lent his voice for.
The song, Annaatthe Annaatthe, which begins with a tribute to SPB, has the Superstar sporting a stylish goggles, attired in a veshti and shirt and a vibhooti on his face. The lyrics, penned by Viveka, is sure to impress the star's legions of fans. He is seen as the darling of masses in the song, and Imman's energetic beats for the peppy song is tailor-made for the star's hardcore fans.
The visuals of Rajini shaking a leg in the song is sure to leave fans cheering and whistling in movie halls. Shankar's Sivaji was the last film which had Rajini clad in a veshti for an intro song. Like most of the intro songs from the star's film, it was SPB who had sung for the sensational song Ballelaka from Sivaji.
45 வருடங்கள் என் குரலாக வாழ்ந்த எஸ்பிபி அவர்கள் அண்ணாத்தே படத்தில் எனக்காகப் பாடிய பாடலின் படப்பிடிப்பின் போது, இதுதான் அவர் எனக்குப் பாடும் கடைசிப் பாடலாக இருக்கும் என்று நான் கனவில் கூட நினைக்கவில்லை. என் அன்பு எஸ்பிபி தன் இனிய குரலின் வழியாக என்றும் வாழ்ந்து கொண்டே இருப்பார்.— Rajinikanth (@rajinikanth) October 4, 2021
Meanwhile, Rajinikanth himself took to Twitter to remember SPB on the occasion. The translated version of his tweet read, "While shooting for the song which SPB had sung for Annaatthe, little did I know that it would be the last song of him. He has been my voice for intro songs for 45 years. His great legacy continues with the songs he has sung over the years."
