RIP: Nagesh

Nagesh, one of my favourite actors, passed away today.

Nagesh was one of Thamizh cinema's finest comedian and character artist. He is one of the few actors who can make you laugh and cry at the same time. His movies with K Balachander (Edhir Neechal, Server Sundaram, Bama Vijayam etc) and Kamal Hassan (Aboorva Sagodharargal, Avvai Shanmugi, the unforgettable MMKR) and several other performances showed his versatility and sheer talent.

Nagesh, one of the gems of Indian Cinema. We will miss you!
