Actor Pandu

Chennai: Covid-19 took away the lives of two more Tamil film celebrities today. Actor Pandu and visually-challenged singer Comagan died early this morning due to corona related complications.

Pandu was 74. He and his wife Kumudha, who had tested positive for Covid-19 recently, were getting treatment at a private hospital in Chennai.

Pandu breathed his last during the wee hours of today without responding to treatment. His wife continues to be in the ICU.

Pandu-Kumudha are parents to three sons- Prabhu, Panchu and Pintu. Pandu was successfully running a company called Capital Letters and beautifully designed nameboards of many leading film personalities’ residences and offices.

It is to be noted that it was Pandu who designed the flag of the All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam.

Singer Comagan

Meanwhile, Comagan, who shot to fame with ‘Ovvoru Pookalumay’ song in ‘Autograph’ too died today due to Covid.

A visually challenged talent, he was running a music troupe called Comaganin Raaga Priya.

“Our blind orchestra (our limitations are limited to just physical images), is run by nine members started in 1991 and now we have more than 25 members. It was only after Director Cheran showcased the beauty of our orchestra in his two national-awards winning movie Autograph (2004) in the song Ovvoru Pookalume with Actor Sneha, we came to be widely known by people,” says the orchestra’s website.
