The movie industry has lost many talented artists who've succumbed to the deadly Covid-19 virus and joining the list now is cinematographer cum actor Shaman Mithru.

Shaman Mithru is a cinematographer who turned into an actor by luck via his debut movie 'Thoratti' in 2019 when many actors refused to take up the shepherd role which involves getting tanned, losing tons of weight and walking barefoot.

Besides being the lead actor and producer of 'Thoratti', Shaman has also worked as the Director of Photography in many Kollywood projects.

Now the actor who was diagnosed with Covid-19 breathed his last in Chennai at the age of 43. He is survived by his wife and 5-year-old daughter.

Our heartfelt condolences to the actor's loved ones. May his soul rest in peace.
