Supporting actor Nitish Veera who's well-known for his portrayal of Pandiyan in 'Asuran' and Dhanush's best friend in 'Pudhupettai' passed away at Chennai Omandurar Government Hospital on Monday (17 May).
The 45-year-old actor was tested positive for COVID-19 and was undergoing treatment at the hospital, but it was too late. Despite acting in very few films, his roles were memorable and he has even shared screen space with Thalaivar Rajinikanth in 'Kaala'.
