Actor Chakravarthy who has played major roles in Kollywood as hero and villain in the 80s has passed away at the age of 62 years old. It was reported that the actor has suffered a heart attack and was found unresponsive by his wife at their residence.

The veteran actor played the lead role opposite Radhika in 'Thai Ponggal', and has played vital roles with other prominent actors including Sivaji Ganesan, Mohan, Rajinikanth and Kamal Haasan.
