“Ambareesh passed away. The hero Aravindakshan Bhagavathar - from my movie Gaanam, which I consider as my best. He also played the lead role in the movie 'Onthe Raktham', which I directed and produced in Kannada. His real name was M H Amarnath. Sumalatha, his wife has also acted in my movie 'Munnetam' opposite to Mammootty in 1981. Dearest Ambi, we shall meet on that beautiful shore soon.” (sic.)
