Several celebrities have taken to Twitter to share their get-well-soon messages. Director Bharathiraja called for a “mass-prayer” by fans and those from the industry to be performed on Thursday.
“SPB fans across the globe will play SPB songs at 6 pm on 20 August at their respective places and pray for his speedy recovery. I invite everyone to be part of the mass prayer (sic),” he has written in his statement.
Veteran Telugu actor Chiranjeevi too shared a personal video message with prayers for SPB to bounce back to health. “My association with Balu is not just from cinema, it is personal too. In Chennai we were staying in the same neighbourhood and met often. Our relationship is of several years. I dearly call him Annaya (brother), and his sisters also treat me as a brother,” he said.
Adding that he has been tracking his health updates closely, he said, “Balu is a treasure not just for Telugu cinema but also for the Indian cinema. His breath is raagam, thaalam and pallavi. I am among the hundreds of fans who are praying that he should soon recover and open that lovely voice and entertain the audience. I believe that everyone's prayers and the god's blessing would expedite his recovery, so let us all pray for him.”
