The singer announced the news via his social media handle and requested his well-wishers not to contact him as he wanted to get sufficient rest and recover from the deadly infection.
Initially, he was stable and responding well to the treatment, but the MGM Healthcare in Chennai confirmed on Thursday that his condition is 'extremely critical'.
A bulletin from the hospital said his condition has deteriorated, warranting maximal life support.
His son, singer SP Charan was updating SPB's condition frequently on his Instagram handle.
Many sites have started propagating the news of his death. There hasn't been any official confirmation, and please refrain from spreading any fake news about the legendary singer.
