Chennai, Jan 20: S.P. Balasubrahmanyam's manager has refuted rumours that the legendary singer suffered breathing-related problems while performing in South Africa last week.
The singer took to the stage at the ongoing Indian International Film Festival of South Africa (IIFFSA) Saturday.
Balasubrahmanyam was there to receive the Outstanding Achievement in Indian Cinema Award as well as perform at the function.
"He was invited to South Africa to receive the award as well as perform. He didn't face any health-related problems there. He is doing fine and has urged all his fans to not believe in rumours," Harnath, the 68-year-old's manager, told IANS.
On Sunday, rumours had surfaced that Balasubrahmanyam had difficulty in breathing after he finished performing at the function.
At the fest, Balasubrahmanyam-starrer Telugu drama "Midhunam" was also screened. He had accompanied the film's director Tanikella Bharani to the screening.
