    This is so sad and so shocking. He is still very young to die..

    Our family back home knew his family well. I can't believe this.

    May his soul rest in peace.

    Hi
    Its really a shocking & sad news.
    I've seen many of his movies & some of them are really worth watching.
    He acted in a Tamil movie 'Mazhalai Pattalam' directed by Actress Lakshmi, a hilarious & an interesting movie.
    May his soul rest in peace.
    A great loss to Kannada Movie world.

    Its really sad to see his demise...

    He is as popular as Dr.Raj Kumar. I loved his acting and the songs in his movies like bhandana, hombisilu, suprabhata are very nice....

    May his soul rest in peace.
