Thiruvananthapuram: Noted Malayalam film actor Nedumudi Venu died at a private hospital here on Monday, film industry sources said.

His end came this afternoon while undergoing treatment for stomach related ailments, they said. He was 73. He is survived by his wife and two sons.

Beginning his career as a theatre artiste, he entered the Malayalam movie world in 1978 through G Aravindan''s movie "Thambu."

The actor handled many versatile roles in Malayalam movies in his over 40 year long film career. 

Reacting to the tragic news, hugely popular comedian and character actor, also a former Lok Sabha member Innocent said words cannot describe what he is passing through after hearing the sad news.

"I began my career in the film industry as a producer and in the eighties when I produced my film 'Vidapareyum Mumbe', when we decided to chart him, it was the first time I saw him and in the subsequent four films also he was there. We had a long lasting friendship, where our families also were involved," said Innocent.

"I always felt, one day Nedumudi would be saying condolences when I pass away, but I never ever felt, I would have to say this about him. It's really painstaking for me as I have lost a very good friend," added Innocent.

Innocent is a cancer patient and has recovered from the disease and currently undergoes checkups.

Condolences have started to pour in and another popular actor Jagdish said he has known him from his second film and their friendship has blossomed hugely.

"Nedumudi was an institution in himself and knew every aspect of art culture and films. Malayalam films have lost one of its biggest personality," said Jagdish.

A multi faceted personality he was also an accomplished player of mridangam and tabla and when he was on shooting sets there was never a dull moment.

Another actor Raju said, he had just returned from a film where he acted alongside Mammootty and a few days back even we spoke.

Actor Jayaram who has acted in numerous films recalled by saying that I spoke to his son just a few hours back and he said he was keeping well.

"An immensely talented actor was he and I have heard many directors from other southern states that how they wished if they had one actor like Venuchettan. His space will never be filled again," said Jayaram.

His hugely popular films include 'His Highness Abdullah, Bharatham, Thenmavin Kombathu' and whenever he joined hands with superstar Mohanlal, the success of the film at the box office was a foregone conclusion.
