Actor Simbu’s fans have been congratulating him on social networking sites for having sung 100 songs in films as playback singer.
Simbu, who debuted as a child artiste in the early eighties, has been playing the lead roles in films for close to 15 years. Besides acting, he has proved his mettle as a script-writer and director besides singing songs in films starring him and others. He is also debuting as music director with the Santhanam-starre Sakka Podu Podu Raja in which he got Anirudh Ravichander and Yuvan Shankar Raja to sing a song each.
Known as a very good dancer as well, Simbu recently recorded a song for an upcoming film titled as En Aaloda Seruppa Kaanom which was his 100th song as a playback singer. Fans and well-wishers have been jamming social networking sites with congratulatory messages lauding Simbu on his achievement.
“It’s really a surprise that I completed 100 songs as a singer; I’m also happy that most of the songs sung by me were super-hit songs. At this juncture, I would like to express my whole-hearted thanks to all music directors, lyricists, directors and fellow playback singers for their cooperation,” says Simbu adding that he was grateful to his fans for patronizing him in all avatars.
“100 is just a number but I’m still celebrating the occasion,” Simbu concludes. In the meantime, his fans have created a hash-tag ‘Singer STRCross100Songs’!
