It's been an year since the legendary singer SP Balasubrahmanyam, who sang more than 40,000 songs in 16 languages, passed away. The music director of Rajinikanth-starrer Annaatthe, D Imman, had revealed last year that the singer's last song was recorded for the film directed by Siva.
Most of the Rajinikanth-starrers which released from '90s had SPB lending his voice for their intro songs; Annamalai, Baasha, Muthu, Padayappa, Sivaji and Petta were a few of them. As the makers of Annaatthe had unveiled its first look and motion poster recently, fans of the Superstar and the singer have been eagerly waiting for the first single from the movie.
