The Chennai-based doctor is a close friend of popular comedian Santhanam and has appeared in three other Tamil films after his first film. Many Kollywood celebrities frequently consult him at the 'Zi Clinic'.
He was survived by his wife Umayal and daughter Sahana. The fact that Umayaal was pregnant with their second child at the time of his demise made the incident even more heart-breaking.
Recently, Umayal gave birth to a baby boy and his family is overjoyed. They are celebrating the baby as the return of Dr Sethuraman himself.
Weeks after his passing, his wife Umayal created an Instagram account to share his message of love and positivity to his fans. In her most recent post, she shared a love letter written before their marriage. Check it out:
