Srividya R.I.P.

Srividya passed away in the early hours of October 19, in a private hospital in Trivandrum. She had been waging a battle against cancer for nearly four years.
Daughter of eminent classical singer M.L. Vasanthakumari, Srividya entered the film world at a very young age doing a prominent role in the Sivaji Ganesan-starrer Thiruvarul Selvar.
She has acted in more than 300 films in all the South-Indian languages and Hindi. She made it big on Asianet the Malayalam T.V. channel, with splendid performances in serials like Muhurtham, she died when she was acting in the serial AmmaThamburathi, which is currently on air.

I liked her roles in movies like Kamal's "Aboorva Sahotarargal," and "AboorvaRaagangal" Mohanlal's "Pavithram" and Jai Shanker's "Noothukku Noor"

Her personal life was a mess and her husband continuously harassed her for money and property. The long drawn battle for divorce sapped her interest in life. She was a true fighter and lived life to the fullest battling against all odds.

Rest in Peace...
