Remember the quirky and happy-go-lucky actor Chelladurai Ayya who made short but memorable appearances in many films over the past decade? He passed away on the evening of April 29th, 2021 due to cardiac arrest. The 84-year-old actor was discovered unconscious by his son in the bathroom.

His funeral is expected to be conducted around 2 pm IST at their church today (30th April). The veteran actor has acted in notable films like Maari, Natpe Thunai, Kaththi, Sivaji, and Airaa to name a few. His moving performance as a father who searches for his missing daughter in Theri captured the hearts of many.

It's truly a sad day for Kollywood as filmmaker KV Anand died earlier today and celebs are mourning the departure of such a beloved director.
