The final rites of popular actor and former vice-president of Nadigar Sangam K N Kaalai were performed today. The Kalaimamani and Naadaga Kaavalar recipient passed away yesterday due to heart attack. He was 84.
KN Kaalai was last seen in Sasi Kumar starrer ‘Kidaari’ in which he played the role of Mookaiah which was praised by the audience.
It may be recollected that he campaigned alongside actor Radha Ravi during the Nadigar Sangam election, Vishal filed a complaint against him as he referred few actors as ‘dogs’ in the building controversy.
Many actors visited his residence in Chennai and paid their homage.
‘Kidaari’ director Prasad Murugesan tweeted: “மூக்கையாவாக அசத்திய KN.காளை அய்யா மறைவிற்கு எங்கள் கண்ணீர் அஞ்சலி! மகாகலைஞனான உங்கள் நினைவுகள் என்றென்றும் எங்களோடு உண்டு!@SasikumarDir”.
