SP Balasubrahmanyam’s son SP Charan asks not to believe rumours on father’s Covid-19 status
Producer SP Charan has clarified that his father SP Balasubrahmanyam, who has been hospitalized for over two weeks now, has not tested negative for Covid-19.
Charan took to Facebook to share a video after a statement in his name was circulated in the media in which he said his father has tested negative for the coronavirus. In the video, Charan has requested everyone to not believe rumours on his father’s Covid-19 status.
“I usually post Appa’s health updates after I have a discussion with the medical team from the hospital. But unfortunately, I am forced to put up a post in the morning,” he said.
“Regardless of whether it is Covid negative or positive, the (health) status is still the same,” he added.
Charan said that his father continues to be on life support, but his vital parameters are stabilizing. He added that he will update on SPB’s health on Monday evening after he has a discussion with the doctors and the medical team from the hospital.
The legendary singer was hospitalized after he tested for the coronavirus. On August 14, his health deteriorated and he had to be shifted to the intensive care unit (ICU) and put on a ventilator. He remained on the ventilator throughout the week and his vitals were closely monitored.
Last Thursday, several members of the Tamil film fraternity came together to pray for the speedy recovery of the legendary singer. A mass prayer was organised in which several Tamil celebrities prayed for SPB’s recovery while playing one of his songs.
In a video, Charan thanked everybody, especially the Tamil film fraternity, for organising a prayer meet for his father’s speedy recovery. “I would also like to thank the film industry, music industry, and people all over the country. We, as a family, are very grateful for your love and affection. People who are praying for us and my father, we are grateful to everyone who initiated this mass prayer for my father’s well-being,” Charan said.
