The latest hot talk going around in Kollywood circles is the backdrop in which the legendary playback singer S.P. Balasubramaniam (SPB) met ailing actress Sona at the hospital where the latter is getting treated for her illness. Sona complained to the police last week that film-maker-singer Charan, son of SPB, tried to outrage her modesty at the bash arranged by Venkat Prabhu to celebrate the success of Mankatha.
After filing the complaint with the police and after narrating the sequences to the scribes, Sona landed up at the hospital the very next day complaining of chest pain. The doctors said that she had indeed suffered a ‘mild’ heart attack and had added that she was out of danger and needed rest. Based on Sona’s complaint, the police had reportedly filed cases under 4 sections against Charan.
Even as the press was predicting that Charan’s arrest could be imminent, Charan had filed an anticipatory bail petition with the High Court of Madras stating that he only warned Sona to behave properly after she drank heavily and fell over him. It’s in this backdrop that SPB’s meeting with Sona at the hospital assumes greater significance.
The burly singer met Sona and advised her to take complete rest. SPB is said to have lent a patient ear to Sona’s version of the sequence of events which led to her complaint. Sona reportedly showed the record-breaking singer video evidence of his son’s misbehaviour and said that it was only due to that incident that she suffered the ‘heart attack’.
SPB reportedly apologized to her on his son’s behalf and said that he would arrange for a public letter of apology from his son.
