Actress Kanaka was a leading actress in the 80s, who debuted in Kollywood via the hit movie 'Karagattakaran'.

Being a leading actress in the industry for decades, Kanaka last appeared in a Malayalam movie titled 'Ee Mazha Then Mazha' in 2000.

The actress distanced herself from cinema following the demise of her mother, popular actress Devika. However, she also mentioned in an interview that she has no interest in playing supporting roles after being a heroine for very long.

But Kanaka made headlines again when her father announced that the actress was mentally unstable and sick. The dispute began when the actress kept her father away from her wealth, and began living separately.

In a previous interview, the actress revealed that her dad was mentally harassing her and her mom throughout their lives, and badmouthed them in public when they failed to listen to him.

Now the actress is rumoured to have been diagnosed with cancer and is living all by herself in Kerala, undergoing cancer treatment. In 2013, the actress had denied claims of undergoing cancer treatment, but the rumours keep surfacing again and again. Guess we have to wait to find out the truth.
