Bharath Gopi, 71, Passes Away

By John Cheeran
Celebrated Indian actor Bharath Gopi passed away today, Tuesday, in Thiruvananthapuram. He was 71.
He was ailing and had undergone an angioplasty at the KIMS Hospital.
Gopi won the Bharath award, the highest honour for an Indian movie actor, for his role as Sankaran Kutty in Kodiyettam in 1975.
His other remarkable roles were in Yavanika, Swayamvaram, Kallan Pavithran, Palangal, Ormakayi, Marmaram, Lekhayude Maranam Oru Flashback, Patheyam, Kattethe Kilikoodu, Aadaminte Variyellu, Panchavadi Palam, Sandhya Mayangum Neram, Appunni and Rachana.
Gopi directed four films -- Njattadi, Yamanam, Utsavapittennu and Ente Hridyathinte Udama.
Gopi was born in 1937 in Chirayankizhu. He was awarded Padma Shri in 1991. Gopi was noted for his involvement in theatre group “Arangu” along with Kavalam Narayanapaniker before he entered the world of films.
Twenty years ago (in 1986) Gopi had suffered hemorrhage and that had curtailed his movements and involvement in films.
Still he had won his many skirmishes to come back to act and react.
