It is a great loss to the movie industry as actor Vivek, a famous comedian and an environmentalist, breathed his last at the SIMS Hospital in Vadapalani.

The actor was rushed to the hospital after suffering cardiac arrest and despite the intensive treatment, he lost his life at 4.35am today.

As an environmentalist, actor Vivek dreamed of planting 1-crore trees in his lifetime and he also conducted many campaigns to create awareness on the issue. He stated his dream on his Instagram bio:

Unfortunately, the actor only planted over 31 lakhs of trees to-date, and his biggest dream was left unfulfilled.

Now the entire Kollywood is mourning the loss of this great actor. May his soul rest in peace!
