Nagesh – Pride of Tamil Cinema
Great actor and comedian artist Nagesh (Real name: Gunddu Rao) passed away on Saturday morning in Chennai.
The great and endearing actor was 76 and has worked in 500 films. He is survived by three sons.
His vintage and memorable comedy scenes are still alive in my mind. Be it in Thiruvilayadal, Server Sundaram, Thillana Mohanambal, the storyteller in Kadhalikka Neramillai and also as a corpse in Magalir Mattum. He recently acted in Kamal Hassan’s film Dasavatharam. He acted along with great actors; be it in MGR-Sivaji era or Rajni-Kamal era. No one can replace him and will be Tamil cinema’s pride.
