VILLAIN ACTOR RAGHUVARAN PASSES AWAY
Villain actor Raguvaran on Wednesday died at a private nursing home in Chetpet. He was ailing for sometime, and his end came this morning. Born on December 11, 1948 the actor had entered filmdom through the film Ezhavadhu Manidhan and acted in Poovizhi Vasaliley, Mister Bharath, Anjali, Mudhalvan, Basha, Sivaji, Bheema. His last film was Sila Nerangalil which was released last month. Besides the Tamil films he has acted in Telugu, Malayalam and Hindi films.
He married actress Rohini and was blessed with a son. Due to misunderstandings between the actor and his actress wife, the court gave them divorce. However, Raghuvaran used to frequent Rohini's house and Rohini was also visiting his house with her son.
On hearing the death news of the actor, actress Rohini was shocked and immediately visited the house of Raguvaran. She wanted the body of Raguvaran to be handed over to her for cremation.
Many film personalities who came to know about the shocking news immediately cancelled their shoots to pay homage to the villain actor.
Raghuvaran was living alone at his T'Nagar house in Chennai. The actor had carved a niche for himself with his style of acting different from the earlier Tamil film villains.
