veteran actor Nagesh passed away on 31st January 2009


The Tamil film industry is in a state of grief following the demise of one of its most senior artistes. Nagesh, a veteran actor who has done more than 1000 films, is one of the most respected and revered figures in the film industry. He had not been in good health in the recent past. Yesterday morning 31st January, he complained of chest pain and passed away when he was being taken to the hospital. He is survived by 3 sons, Anandh Babu, Ramesh Babu and Rajesh Babu. The final rites are expected to be performed tomorrow 1st February at around noon at Besant Nagar.

His demise has sent a shock not only across the film industry, Many names from the film industry have been pouring in right from the time the news of his demise was known. The Tamilnadu Chief Minister, Kalaignar Karunanidhi has also expressed his grief over the death of Nagesh.

Among those who paid their last respects to Nagesh since morning are Rajinikanth, Kamal Haasan, Manorama, S.S.Rajendran, Delhi Ganesh, K.S.Ravikumar, Kovai Sarala, K.Balachander, Bharathiraja, Vasanth, Suriya, Vivek, S.Ve.Sekar, Y.G.Mahendran, Mohan, Rajesh, Santhana Bharathi, Goundamani, Murali and many others.

Its a great loss for Kamal because in most of Kamal's home production movie Kamal would like Nagesh to act in his movie, Even in his recent movie Dasavatharam Nagesh had done a father's role for Kamal.
