The demise of legendary singer SP Balasubrahmanyam who recorded over 40,000 songs in 16 languages in five decades has left millions of fan in a void. While the Indian film industry continued to mourn the singer’s death, rumours around SPB’s hospital bills came as a shock to many.
Reports have it that Vice President Venkaiah Naidu had to pay the hospital bills of late singer S P Balasubrahmanyam during his last days as the family was unable to clear the bills. Rumours revealed that MGH Healthcare charged a whopping amount of Rs 3 crores for the corona treatment and physiotherapy sessions.
It was also stated that Balu’s family had to seek help from central government and that it was the Vice President who volunteered. However, taking to the reports as offensive and hurtful, the singer’s son SP Charan who is also a singer cleared the air through his official Facebook page.
“I don’t know why people do this, without even consulting us. There are rumours that we requested the Tamil Nadu government but they did not reciprocate, and I had gone to the Vice President of India and they had reciprocated instantaneously. I also came across reports that hospital authorities refused to handover dad’s body unless we cleared the dues. Let me just say that this all a big hogwash,” said Charan in his recent live session.
Charan also stated that he and hospital authorities will soon release a press statement to make things clear. “Our family are grateful for everything MGM Healthcare and the doctors who 24/7 attended mu father,” SP Charan concludes. Meanwhile, MGM Healthcare authorities refused to comment on the management’s decision to not accept pending bills.
